I have new photos! Turns out the trick is you have to get out there and look in the morning. And it seems to me that these things only last a very short while, maybe just 1 morning.
Oh, about that "egg" I originally found... It totally dried up to almost nothing by the end of that 1st day. The goo b gone!

Here are some photos I took today showing what interesting thing grew out of those "eggs". It was about 9:20 am, and this is not far from Los Angeles, Southern California. For size, that is a nickle in the photos. (except for the photo with the flies on it, that was taken after 1pm)

These things must almost explode upwards quickly and with force, because I noticed a dirt chunk was usually broken up next to some of these plants.

I had to get really close to notice it, but there is a bit of a fresh poop smell, light yet sharp & yukky. The flies are all over it. Smell was something that was often referred to as a clue to the identity.

So it does appear to be a STINKHORN of some kind. It's just so interesting!!!
Thanks very much everybody for your help.
