A phalloid fungi (Phallales - Pallaceae) commonly known as Devil’s fingers or Octopus stinkhorn, quite distinctive by its form, color and foul-smelling.
Clathrus archeri is native to Australia and New Zealand, and has been introduced in parts of Europe, North America and the United Kingdom.
The Octopus stinkhorn has a gelatinous egg stage from which the fruitbody arises, its four to eight reddish arms each coated with dark, foul-smelling tissue. The unpleasant odor attracts flies which disperse the spores.
