This small attractive stinkhorn
was photographed in the Overland Park Arboretum south of Kansas City.
I took a few "eggs" home and placed them in moist soil. In a couple
days they did "hatch" but they were not as photogenic as the mushrooms
Of interest is the fact that the mushroom may possess either three or four "tentacles" which are usually fused at the top, unlike some other similar stinkhorns.
