Yes you are correct. No smell even when handled. By the way the fungi size that I previously mentioned (approx 2CM was the length without the stretched mid section. Also…. From the MO pics on this critter I have to go with Mutinus Fr. Have a look at the images Debbie and see what you think and comment for me. Ta.

looks like the “stinking gleba” is already gone

but did you get any kind of odor offa these? I remember you saying that the other tiny stinkhorn that we collected with you last spring actually had a pleasant odor.

Ours never went beyond the egg stage.

Hi Steve

See you are back home in Lismore? Do you have anything like this in your camp.? The whole fungi was only about 2cm. Nowhere as big as the geneneral specimens I have come across in my area.
Kind Regards, Ian aka kundabungkid.

Similar to Mutinus boninensis
