|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Seen on a hike today on a shady riverbank. This was the best of several in a small area, all obviously past their best. Non of the regular Mauritian hikers have ever seen one before, presumably because they only appear with the recent wet and hot conditions, and do not last very long. Any clues as to ID would be most welcome.|

I believe Peter is right on track with his ID.
A Great shot of what appears to be a type of Phallus indusiatus or Stinkhorn Fungus in it's latter stage of growth. Love the excellent detail and beautiful colors. The vertical framing works our perfectly in this instance. Just the right amount of exposure.
wow, what a wonderful stink horn - the ones in our country are just black and white!
thanks for showing
