Phallus indusiatus – White Crinoline Stinkhorn

On the ground, in tropical or subtropical wet forests. This phallic-looking species emerges from an egg as a white spongy stem with a conical head. A long, white indusium (net-like skirt) is suspended from the base of the head. The stinking, slimy, olive-brown spore mass forms on the head.
