Observation 23987: Phallus impudicus L.
When: 2009-08-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Heavy, rich scent of honey exuding from the fungus, very distinctive. Smelt it before I saw it- however, the tip is white- does this become green at some point? Saw ’Devil’s Eggs’ nearby this site too.

The spores have been eaten by insects already. It was green before, now its on its way out, hence the white chambered head, would be my view.
