Description

This was a first for me. This rare and unusual shaped fungus took me by surprise. This specimen stood around an inch (25 mm) tall. After spotting the first, I began to see them every where. All were found on decaying wood among the leaf litter. A neat find for sure! Found in dense woods on decaying wood among moist leaf litter.
