Whilst clearing gauze bushes on our shoot in North Yorkshire we found several white jelly filled balls about the size of a golf ball. They had a small root on the base but nothing on the top. When we cut one in half there was a cone in the bottom in jelly then another jelly layer and an outer skin like a puff ball. They were covered by many years of dry needles. Any thoughts on what they are?
Thank you for the answear, these are pure white and have stayed white overnight. Never seen anything like this at all.
Agreed, definitely stinkhorn eggs. They can carry on growing once they have been taken from the ground which is quite unusual.
These were also found under dry needles.
