Phallus impudicus var togatus

Is a synonym according to Index fungorum. I’m not up on my Latin but a toga wearing phallus is a memorable name for a variety.

MO may have been at fault

I looked into this name in MO and it had a synonymy with Phallus impudicus. I don’t think that is correct, but digging into Index Fungorum and looking at Fungi of Switzerland 2 provided some clarity. IF says that Dictyophora is a synonym for Phallus which actually seems reasonable to me. Phallus duplicatus is the basionym for D. duplicata.

Any notes here?

Any notes on this one, and how you got to this name? I thought Phallus impudicus didn’t have a net below the gleba like that.
