Looks what's ….ahh..…Popping up in Sickstas yard.
When Sicksta called me over to look at this I thought…
~I am sure a few other things came to mind as well ~~but, lets not go there..I will let you use your own imagination. :)
So I took a few photos and pulled out Mushrooms Demystified
At first glance I thought it was Mutinus caninus
After more reading and photos I believe it is Mutinus elegans
The brownish slime are spores..
with an olive brown to brown slime towards the apex (covering 2-3 cm in Mutinus caninus, more in Mutinus elegans) but usually not covering the extreme tip; the slime quickly becoming foul and odorous, and often quickly removed by insects; hollow; spongy; with a whitish, sacklike volva at the base.
If you know what this mushroom is please let me know so I can confirm this ID.
I thought it was a very cool find..
Jack could care less..
