It is more white, and the two mushrooms look like a BRETZEL.
Slugs love. After their meal there remains only the conical part because outside hardest. Gelatin is emptied. Obs later. On Coconut-Palm. No fire.

Some Doc in MYCOBANK, http://fr.mycobank.org/..., read the Remark.
And see description on: http://fr.mycobank.org/...
Beautiful obs.

asco has no stem but the agaric it’s growing on does have a small one. The host is immature so it isn’t clear, also not the best picture. The Yellow horns are the ascomycetes and I suppose it bares its spores somewhere on them. I had a description paper somewhere but am unable to locate it. It was a cool find and I’m happy to share it with others who think the same.

whoah!

does this have a stem? what purpose are those yellow “horns?” where does it bear its spores?

what an amazing asco, doing its best basidio impression!
