SpeciesPhallus indusiatus
LocalitySarawak, Malaysia
DescriptionKnown as the Veiled Stinkhorn, the net-like skirt of this species aids in attracting insects which will help disperse its spores. Like most members of its genus this fungus earns its name from the foul odor produced, but the scent of this species has also been attributed to having aphrodisiac properties as well.
