Notes: Found under dead and dried bamboo leaves. Growing individually aprox. 300 to 500 mm apart.
50 to 60 mm dia. fairly firm to the touch. When cut in half they have a very distinct inner core so not a “puff ball”
No nasty smell, wife describes it as “bland”

i tried a few other sites but none had anything like it.
The stem develops from out of the egg. There must be threads (rhizomorphs) attached to the underside of the egg. If not then it is something else but for sure something related, some other stinkhorn or the like.
but it does not have a stem outside of the ball. its just a ball on the ground with very fine filaments attaching it to the soil.
Phallus impudicus or Clathrus archeri in young button stage.
