[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
General call: can somebody tell me how to call this one? The picture was taken in a ski resort and it was the first time I ever saw it. It grows out of the ground in a brown ball, a bit smaller than a tennis ball. Then it stands like this about 10 to 15 cm. It also has a hole on the top end. It looks like that but, but it's not...please tell me the word.

I think it's Phallus impudicus, if you found it in a forest.
Could be also Phallus hadriani (but this is a slim chance) if you found it on some sandy coastal area.
I think the latin name tells everything about its resemblance.

Interesting fungi, nice colors and sharpness. I think it could be Phallus hadriani.

Definately as the others have said one of the stink horn fungi, very nicely captured,
I surgest you put the sugestions into google images or other search engine and compare what it throws up to yours.
Hopeb this is of help yours Robert
