This is growing next to a Walking Iris. It's a beauty but it stinks! Gnats love it! It is a vibrant orange color.

Perhaps a Stinkhorn Fungus.

I have had that one before. This is more of a pretzel shape and about the same size. The Stinkhorn looks more, um phallic?

It collapsed this afternoon in the heat. It's currently 81ยบ.

I bet its still a stinkhorn fungus that was either deformed or a different kind.

Yes I think it is! I have been looking all day online for a picture. This is a Basket or Lattice Stinkhorn Fungus photo. Looks similar. Maybe mine didn't get fully grown because of the heat?
