Pseudocolus fusiformis (3 Photos and Description)

Pseudocolus fusiformis emerges from a grayish-white oval egg case. Its four arms are reddish-orange, the inside of which is laden with a rotten-smelling greenish gleba to attract insects which feed on and spread its spores. The arms are connected at the top initially, but soon open and spread out to expose its treasure.
