The Q&A Archives: tuber fungi

Question: Hie!
A post script to my e-mail about reddish tuber: added description, color reddish-orange. Almost looks like an alaskan crab leg sticking up out of the ground! Thanks

Answer: Between your mention of the flies earlier and now this crab leg description, I think I know just what it is. I think it is what is called a stinkhorn! More information about these, check out the following page.

That is very cool, I have never heard of these before. Thank you for asking your question!
