    Hello,

    I was referred to your website by the Google search engine. I am trying identify an unknown growth in my garden. I live on the eastern shore of Maryland (sandy soil) if that makes a difference. If you can help me out I would appreciate it. I've attached digital pictures of the growth. Do you know what it is? If so, is it dangerous to have and how can I prevent it? Thanks for your help.

    If this doesn't get moved there anyway, go into the Fungus and Lichen forum section of this website, and look for previous posts on

    Stinkhorn

    Wouldn't worry about it.

    Use the website's Search feature for stinkhorn to find previous discussion, because you can see a variety of photos and replies that way.

    Did you ever find out what the fungus is. I live in Queens, N.Y. and starting getting them about 2 weeks ago.
