A rare white, tightly attached non-poroid resupinate, spreading over its rotten beech wood substrate. The edges fray out into flattened branches or fingers, sometimes blunt, sometimes pointed. When collected it had no odour, but later developed an unpleasant strong smell not unlike mothballs. It has also been described as like 'old garlic' or the Stinkhorn, but smell is a very subjective thing. The spores are distinctively spiny. Not many records. 1st Notts record.
