While walking back to my office from  training session, I noticed some Stinkhorn fungi in a flower bed. In fact there were multiple specimens of two different species of Stinkhorn fungi located in close proximity to each other (see fourth photo) –

  • Asteroe rubra – a red star shaped Stinkhorn fungus
  •  Phallus rubicundus – a red phallic shaped Stinkhorn fungus

On my morning walk to work I was lucky to observe some excellent fungal specimens, including mushrooms, bird nest fungi (possibly Cyathus stercoreus) and two types of Stinkhorn fungi – Colus pusillus and Phallus rubicundus.
