In search of the Dog Stinkhorn

October 18, 2022 – Elstead Common with Naima & Les

When Naima told me she had found some Dog Stinkhorn (Mutinus caninus) out on the common I wanted her to show me as I have never seen this before. On a clear but misty morning, I joined her and Les on their morning walk so they could show them to me. After a short walk up to the nearby fields, Naima spotted one. What a strange-looking fungus. We soon spotted several more. After getting back on the main path, I left them to their walk, objective achieved.
