Hi All,

there are a couple of fungus that have appeared in the garden, the first in April under oak trees and the second, an orange one, now in mid May which has attracted flies with its unpleasant smell.

Any ideas what they are???

Hi Lisa,

yes the first one is a morel, a picture of which is also on this site...http://www.setasysitios.es/Default.aspx?info=0000BA

where there are many other 'shroom pictures, separated into friendly and dangerous pages! I think one or two people will enjoy drooling over some of the images!!

Greetings Sue and Lisa,
Only just came across this thread - can't imagine how I didn't get wind or whiff of it before!
Thanx for the link.
Will try to check up on 'Shroom 2.

Greetings Sue,
I was pretty sure what it was (Clathrus ruber), 'cos of the stink and the flies. Couldn't find a Sp. or Eng. name, so here's a French link (with common names in Fr. and Ger.):
http://mycostra.free.fr/bulletin/clathrus_ruber.htm

It used to be classified as a stinkhorn (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallaceae), but no longer - don't ask me why - these things are waayyy over my head - I just ogle  ;D.

Hi All,

Thank you Technopat,

 I found several English names but not sure which is the most widely used Latticed Stinkhorn, Red Cage, Latticework Fungus.

As for Spanish I found a site;  http://www.asturnatura.com/Consultas/Ficha.php?Especie=Clathrus%20ruber

Which gives the Catalan name Gita de Bruixa ("witch's vomit") or Reixes del diable

Regards, Sue

Greetings Sue,
Your Latticed stinkhorn is the one - that's the name that rang the loudest bell!
And just to check, I went off to the following http://home.pacbell.net/seaonion/stink.html which gives some cool pics. of another 'shroom you posted some time ago and which I seem to remember I incorrectly :-[ identified as one of the puffball family (I'll check later). I hope you didn't eat it on my say-so!  :o
