    As if we haven't figured it out by now, it's a stinkhorn! What kills me is when someone misidentifies a shroom and then won't listen to anyone else or consider the evidence. Semilibera do NOT grow from cups, nor do they smell "nutty", at least not in my experience. And that cap does not look "free".

    I've found semilibera ("half free"), Verpa (both bohemica and conica), Gyromitra, and morels like esculenta and crassipes. If you're halfway observant, they all look different! But, there are further tests to employ to make sure of what you have. And like others have said, if there's any doubt in your mind do not eat it!

    I've found northern tooth growing at the base of oaks when the Audubon guide tells you they grow high up on maples! Yet, I've never mistaken them for hens! I find tons of boletes every year, but that's a genus I'm really leery of. Never had enough confidence in my finds to actually try and eat any. I'm on a mission to try and find the King Bolete, Boletus edulis! I don't know if I'll ever succeed, but I always have the dried ones in cellophane from eastern Europe and Russia that I can get at the local Polish deli!

    Stinkhorns have hollow stipes (stems) just like a morel, so don't let that fool you. Stinkhorn is what is pictured to start this thread, and they are NOT edible. Happy and safe hunting/eating!
