has a pitted top (almost like a morel) under the spore mass, this one doesn’t.

I got the name from a article in the November Fungimap Newsletter;
Phallus merulinus Newly Reported for the Top End, by Matt Barrett & Ben Stuckey.

Yeah, I’ve been wanting to make a netted stinkhorn costume for years…

So I have been calling this long-netted stinkhorn Phallus indusiatus, but I see some are also using the name P. merulinus… Does anyone one know the differentiating features, or if perhaps they are synonymous? Or maybe one is found in Australia, and the other is not?

that is such a cool veil…it’d make a great halloween costume!
