Looking for the scientific name of this shroom.

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

Dictyophora indusiata

or

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallus_indusiatus

Crinoline Mushroom
(Dictyophora indusiata)

A showy species from the rainforest, this pale brown mushroom has a lacy veil which hangs down from the steeply sloped cap and reaches almost to the level of the soil. It smells awful but the flies don't mind.

That is a cool looking shroom - did you find it locally?

If Phil correctly identified the species - this mushroom is from the Rainforest and Rich lives in Chatown.... or maybe global warmer is more serious than I thought :P

Hmmmm - that WOULD explain the extreme drought down here, although Rich could be hanging around in the rainforest ~
