Young specimens form in a pink, egg-like sack composed of a 1-2mm fleshy, membranous outer layer surrounding the young mushroom. Fragrance was pleasant, floral, like a perfume, but only in the wild specimens. What was left of one of the “unborn” eggs after it hatched on a bedside table overnight was the expected putrescent smell characteristic to the Phallaceae.
