Mutinus caninus Mutinus sp


        Stinkhorns produce their spores in a mass of foul-smelling slime that forms a covering over the upper portion of the fruiting body. The foul odor given off by the spore mass attracts flies and other insects, which aid in dispersing the spores. Stinkhorns are decomposers and are most likely to be found around decaying logs and stumps or in areas where the soil is rich in humus.
