Found this mature fungi in a local garden today.Have now seen 4 in the last 2 years-the 1st. I have found myself.The last 1 was in a different local garden hedge & our County Ecology Officer tells us this garden has been known for these over the years.Today our local paper has a photo of a recent 1 elsewhere & says "there are only 38 findings of this in the country".It also gives an alt. name of Lattice Stinkhorn.
