Hi, I have poured through pictures and searches but can't seem to identify this. It started growing in my yard about 4 years ago and has gotten progressively worse each year. It started with a handful of these things and now they appear all over the yard. I haven't found any means to remove them, and don't know if it is possible. They are a bit of a nuisance because they eventually rot and turn into a slimy mess. These are located in Lenexa, KS and usually appear in August. Thanks for any help you can provide!
