Leotia Viscosa (Chicken Lips)
These fungi are small to medium sized. On ground or sometimes rotten wood. Cap and stalk present. Stem smooth or scruffy. Maybe glutinous or not.
Found at Lake Waikeramoana on May 9, 2001 at
the 15th Annual New Zealand Fungal Foray.
Different people react differently to different mushrooms.
NEVER eat a wild mushroom without being 100% sure it is safe to do so.
