This was my first encounter with a mushroom in the Stinkhorn classification, though I had I had read some about them. Very quickly, it became apparent why they are aptly named "stink" horns.
This mushroom had a very distinct and potent smell. One that will remain on your hands if you handle the mushroom, which was a mistake that I made out of interest in the spongy stem.
