Phallus impudicus 25-05-13 & 06-06-13

Michael and I had a trip to Wade Wood on the 25th May and we found the fruiting body of a Stinkhorn  (Phallus impudicus),  which resembled an egg, and it was half buried in the ground. I returned today, and relocated it, and cut it open when I got home, and found that it had been part eaten and damaged.

Dorsal view.

Ventral view, something had chewed a hole inside and it was part eaten.

Cross section of the head. Here you can see some of the damage and the olive coloured spores inside.
