Greetings,
I am trying to add the (stinkhorn) Clathrus crispus to the data base. The genus is Sphaerobolus, (fungus) I found this article and there seems to be some question this. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/taxonomy.html#agaricomycetes any help getting this smelly fly attracting fungi into the database. The smell is of rotting meat. It comes from Europe and can be found in tropical regions of the US.

Hi Robert,

Those are really nice photos of an interesting fungi. The situation is, though, that the plants database is only for plants and fungi aren't plants...
