Calvin Campbell sent us this picture of mutinus elegans stinkhorn that came up in his yard after a rain the other day. One of our readers sent along this additional info:
Mutinus elegans, commonly known as the elegant stinkhorn, the dog stinkhorn, the headless stinkhorn, or the devil's dipstick, is a species of fungus in the Phallaceae family. A saprobic species, it is typically found growing on the ground singly or in small groups on woody debris or leaf litter, during summer and autumn in Europe and eastern North America. The fruit body begins its development in an "egg" form, resembling somewhat a puffball partially submerged in the ground. As the fungus matures, a slender orange to pink colored stalk emerges that tapers evenly to a pointed tip.
It is actually edible, though most people do not desire to eat it. REMEMBER, never eat a mushroom without checking with an expert! Many mushrooms look alike and are poisonous! It can also be a nuisance because of the insects it attracts.
