Hebeloma animophilum – Ghoul Fungus

On and around decaying vertebrate carcasses and bones, but also fruiting in nitrogen-rich, urine-soaked soil. This species has a large, sticky, cream to pink-brown cap and pink-brown gills. Pink-brown spores often lodge on the dry, whitish stem. The cobwebby veil (cortina) covers the young gills.
