Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified. Netted Stinkhorn. Only odd thing to me is the yellow color of the netting. Arora says D. multicolor is yellow to orange-red, tropical, but says nothing about the netting. MO says Dictyophora has been deprecated to Phallus.

Then the flies take away the dark spores and they all turn white.

would be a good name for this. But it doesn’t seem to match the color combination at your site: http://www.mycobank.org/…;.

This has a pale whitish head, not gray-green or grayish. Could this have been only hours old?
