Illustration for the term "gleba".

From the New York Mycological Society Summer 2011 newsletter, by Jason Cortlund, Editor, "gleba" is defined as:

"From Latin, the noun "gleba" describes the spore-bearing part of Gasteromycetes, fungi that include species of puffballs and stinkhorns. The fetid, dark tissue at the top of the stinkhorn Mutinus elegans is its gleba."
