Observation 4082: Phallus impudicus L.
When: 2007-09-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found on the campus of UBC. Just kinda looking under the landscaping as walking along, and spotted these.

I thought it was neat to get the fly on the stink horn here, but it turns out, there was always a fly on the stink horn, it would have been hard to get a photo without a fly.

Only smooth because it is fresh

The actual head is not smooth, but reticulated. It only looks smooth here because it is fresh, and all the reticulated holes are equally filled with slime. There was also a crumbling very rotten one near by, which had a bleached out head, showing the webby network of indentations. It was soo rotten I didn’t take a photo of it.

Did you consider Phallus ravenelii

I don’t know all the differences, but one is a smooth head rather than a reticulate one. Ron Pastorino has an observation of P. ravenelii.
