The last month has been stormy at Rimbun Dahan, with rain almost every day.
This Stink Horn fungus was found mid March under a clump of palms. A
saprophytic (parasitic) fungus, it emits an odour that attracts flies that
visit the messy decaying flesh, subsequently helping to disperse the spores.
Genus: Dictyophora (Stink Horn fungi)
