This just appeared on the edge of our back landscaped and wooded area. I have no idea of where to start to identify it. It isn’t rigid and slightly waves with the breeze. I know the flies love it but there’s no way I’m touching it to find out why!

    I’ll take your advice and let it be. I was a bit put-off by the wonderful “aroma” mixing with the jasmine, as well as the hovering flies, which appear to be conduits for propagating these gems – but, I am all about letting nature do its thing. I’ll give it wide berth and it will be safe from me. Thanks.

    I’m not sure there is anything to “take care of”. Those mushrooms aren’t harming the garden, quite the opposite… If you do a bit of reading on hugelkultur, you may learn that the mycelium is to be encouraged, rather than “taken care of”. Now those stinkhorns may look unpleasant in a certain light, the benefits they provide to the yard’s ecosystem is more than offset by the appearance, or the smell… Which in honesty… I’ve never noticed… I can not imagine putting my nose close enough to smell it anyway…

    I never would have guessed! Thank you for the identification. Will be taking care of this straightaway.
