Dog Stinkhorns and Wrinkled Clubs

Dog Stinkhorn, Mutinus caninus
The Dog Stinkhorn is a small thin, phallus-shaped woodland fungus with a dark tip. It is often found growing in small groups on wood debris, or in leaf litter.
 I visited a colony of hundreds of this unusual fungus growing in wood chips scattered underneath trees. The Dog Stinkhorn was on my wish list so I was pleased when the opportunity arose. There were other fungi present, including Wrinkled Club and some unidentified species.
