I dont think I tasted these as they were being digested by what I believe to be Hypomyces sp under a carpet of Pine needles.
They smelled pretty foul.

they were growing under a carpet of pine needles, and it seemed that they were being digested by Hypomyces sp, but it could very well have been a mold as well.
