I found them referred to as ‘’Lizards Claw’’ supposedly imported from the tropics.These came up everyday for over a week but never opened up like until the last day.They are related to Stink Horns and the spores are moved by flies.Go figure under, that tree was woodchips and every mushroom I didnt eat since this spring.There have been other species of fungi that came up from spores this summer also.(Coprinus and a Lepiota)
