Collection location: Irvine, California, USA [Click for map]
Hundreds, if not thousands, of Battarrea phalloides in a location where I had previously found one old specimen. There are many separate groupings, look like growing in rings. In a waste area where tree trimming waste and litter has been dumped (but not recently, i.e. could have been in the 70s). They are growing in the mounds created by this old waste and in mounds of soil. Coastal sage scrub plants, lots of castor, fennel, artichoke thistles and mustard. Very strong odor. Going back to count and take more photos…

This is very cool. I don’t think I have ever found more than 1 of these at a time.
…from 8 sites within a 200 foot square (approximately) is 722 (including old specimens). Tried to dig up an “egg”, but did not find one (yet).
