Netted Stinkhorn (Dictyophora sp)

Common Name: Netted Stinkhorn
Scientific Name: Dictyophora sp.
STINKHORNS have a bizarre variety of shapes, but most often are phallic in shape or have "arms" that resemble tentacles. Many are quite colorful, and they are common in gardens and on lawns. Most species emit a very foul odor, which is designed to attract flies (to help spread the spores)
