Wild Mushrooms of Ainsworth: Scrambled-Egg Slime

Also known as dog-vomit slime, this stuff popped up overnight a couple of times when the weather was miserably hot and humid.

It soon becomes dark and crusty, and when it's dried and you run over it with the lawn mower, it sends up a dark cloud of spores.

OK, so it's not a true mushroom, but it's in my mushroom identification guide.
