A quick walk around Leechpool in Horsham turned up a fantastic specimen of Stinkhorn. We found a patch of about 10 of them at different stages of development. We managed to walk a couple of miles before the rain became a deluge, so we headed back to the bike and shot off home again.

Here is an immature Stinkhorn. From this 'egg' (volva) the stinkhorn erupts.
