Phallaceae, stinkhorn fungi,
From a pearl looking like bulb, this seriously standing mushrooms as a very short life above ground, shooting up over night and collapsing in the morning. I’ve noticed in our back garden the shiny bulbs in the ground a fortnight ago and this is what coming out of it.
This is after 6 weeks of wet weather, temp is around 25 degree celsius.

    They are unusual! I wonder if they’re mature or if they transform into something different as they grow!! Well captured…hope you find out what they are!

  • Thank you Lynn, this is what came out of the Earth Jewels, {next pic} Phallaceae, stinkhorn fungi, and this is as far as they get to, they are fully mature and last only a few hours in the morning
