TOPIC: Mushrooms growing in bison scat

Mushrooms growing in bison scat 2 years 2 weeks ago #2654

Hi, I found little yellow cup-shaped mushrooms growing INSIDE a bison patty. They were 1-3mm in diameter, slightly translucent. They weren't visible until I broke open the patty. I have seen mushrooms growing out of the scat, but this is the first I've seen fruiting bodies completely inside. Anyone know what kind of fungus this is?
Thanks

That is very tough. I will check, but in the mean time can you collect some and dry it?

I tried drying some and they were so small they disappeared!
