Ball shaped fungi with lattice interior

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Ball shaped fungi with lattice interior

Post by JaneP » Tue Nov 26, 2019 7:11 pm

Hi,
I was digging in my garden in Bristol yesterday and came across this fungus growing in the leaf litter from a bamboo. There were two balls, one was already partially broken, it has a lattice type interior which was covered in a jelly substance.

Is anyone able to tell me what it is?

Many thanks
Jane

Hi Jane welcome to the forum.
It is one of the "stink horn" group. It may develop into a Phallus impudicus or even better as a White cage fungi Ileodictyon cibarium.. leave the second one to develop and update us as to what it turns in to.

Hi Mal,
Thanks so much for your reply. The second one isn’t attached to the soil anymore, so it’s starting to shrivel a bit, but I’ll leave it be and see if it does anything.
Thanks for your help
Jane
