Description:

Immature Stinkhorns - just glad to find them before they'd hatched as smell is quite rank. Found on uprooted, decaying Chestnut stump.

Is that Pterostichus niger

Is that Pterostichus niger joining the party in front? Yum.

I think the beetle is

I think the beetle is Pterostichus madidus because of the red legs. Stinkhorns at this stage are also known as 'Witches Eggs'.
