Appropriate latin name too Phallus impudicus "Stinkhorn". I believe in Victorian times the old lady's used to go around destroying them so the sight of them would not corrupt young girls! But then they used to put skirts on the furniture in those days so people would not see the chair legs. Can't say chair legs have ever turned me on! Maybe the source of the saying "a nicely turned ankle" though!

There is also a "Dog Stinkhorn" Mutinus caninus so named because it resembles the same bit of a dog!

My wife and I are very much into fungi and have been collecting and eating them for at least 30 years. I can recall eating as many as eleven species at one sitting.

They are superb subjects for photography too, although the ambient lighting in woods can be unhelpful. They are also good habitats for a variety of small insects. Very nutritious!
