I was walking through a forrest... I saw a peculiar mushroom, here is it's description:

White ball, at first I thought it was a turtle egg... I soon realised that turtles bury there eggs...
I moved on and found the same structure, only on this one, the white ball opened on the top and 3 pink tendrils with pores reacing up... My girlfreind called them "crab claws" to which I remarked they looked more like "squid tentacles"
I touched the mushroom, and got this brown goo on my fingers that smelled very much like shit, or rotting flesh...
Has any one come across this interesting species and knows it's species name?

Hehe, you made a good guess, they are called "stinky squid" the latin name is Pseudocolus schellenbergiae. They do smell quite horrible don't they :smile:

As LizardKing said, Stinky Squids. Nice description.

An odd fact about them - mycologists believe they are not native to the US. They were probably introduced accidentally with plants imported from the tropics.

Happy mushrooming!
