This doesn’t quite look right to me… the “eggs” are kinda small compared to other obs. And the outside surface is too fuzzy. But to be Nidula the “eggs” should be more grey than this. I’m just not sure here…

If you can see how the eggs are attached? Take fine tweezers and gently remove the “eggs”, and see if you can see the thin string that attaches each egg.

Thanks Darvin
