Long Wood 30-07-13 jamieharrop2013-08-02T20:55:00+01:00August 2nd, 2013|0 Comments Michael Sykes found these fungi whilst having a stroll through the wood. Rosy Brittlegill (Russula rosea). Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus) above and the remains of one below. No Comments Steve Blacksmith August 3, 2013 at 9:55 pm - Reply The black top of the Stinkhorn is its covering of sticky spores. The overpowering gas-like smell of this fungus attracts many flies – mostly bluebottle types – which will take every bit of the black away, spreading the fungus spores around, and leaving it white like another of Alison's pictures of Stinkhorn, Phallus impudicus, she posted recently.
