Dog Stinkhorn Fungus (Mutinus Caninus)

A smaller stinkhorn with a much weaker odour, only growing to about 8 to 15cm tall. Its honeycombed cap surface is orange, more difficult to find than the common stinkhorn and less widespread. I have only seen them a few times, finding them in much darker damp forests areas. Insects feed on the gleba and in turn distribute the spores with their legs, a few days the whole fruit body rapidly decays.
