Stinkhorn Fungus Andy

Stinkhorn Fungus (Phallus Impudicus)

I can always smell a stinkhorn fungus long before I see them and cannot wait to take my pictures and retreat very quickly. You have to witness the smell your self to believe just how bad it is. I can almost taste the terrible smell on my tongue and it makes my eyes water, smells like rotting flesh. They usually have flies resting on the fungi; the flies eat the fungi gleba, which in turn its the insect’s feet that distribute the spores. Can be edible, not that I can imagine anybody wants to eat these.
