  1. Something doesn't work properly with the automatic identification option.
    It says no wikipedia link found.
    But here it clearly is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutinus_caninus

    1. Sorry about that, sometimes the automatic process chokes on (complex) Wikipedia pages. Fixed now!

      PS: can you please set the country (or geotag) on all your photos consistently? Saves us moderators from having to do it. If you ever want to find out if you miss any, there's this handy overview:

      ...which looks empty now, which is good :)

      Beautiful species btw!

        1. They are fine now, Lars :) But only because moderators already fixed the missing ones. No worries. Posted 4 years ago

Mutinus caninus, commonly known as 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, during summer and autumn in Europe, Asia, and eastern North America. It is not generally considered edible, although there are reports of the immature 'eggs' being consumed.
