lots of rot. that any are doing it at the same time is correlative, not causative.

things like this are beyond ID, unless you are interested in what’s rotting them. that will require a microscope.

Rotting Mushroom?

Would it be unusual to see many (+5) mushrooms that looked exactly like this spread throughout an area of forest if this is considered a rotting mushroom? Would they all rot at the same time and rate even though they were spread out?
