Observation 6047: Clathrus ruber P. Micheli ex Pers.

When: 2008-01-12

Collection location: Santa Cruz, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

No specimen available

Brought in as eggs earlier in the week, they soon hatched into stinky mature forms. For the sake of both patrons and identifiers (the ID table was next to this exhibit) I placed clear plastic “odor-containing” cups over the fungi (easily removed for photo ops or a quick whiff)…for a display of curiously captive Clathrus!
