I found this in my front yard late Monday afternoon on Labor Day, and it wasn’t there just 24 hours before. By Wednesday morning at 7am, it had turned black. I dug it up to put it in the trash real fast because I could hear the garbage truck around the corner. It was now black and had black-worm-like roots or something underneath. It also stunk with a sulfur-type smell, and small, tiny things were floating around that resembled those things I used to blow off dandelions when I was a kid.

    I’m thinking maybe one of the shoestring mushrooms. Was this near a tree?

    About 6 feet from a Virginia Pine and 10 feet from a Sugar Maple, mostly shaded by the maple during the day.
