**UPDATE: April 30, 2012: Special thanks to Michael Wood of Mykoweb for identifying the Stinkhorn in the first two photos as Phallus hadraini. "Your Phallus impudicus may actually be Phallus hadriani…I’ve seen no record of P. impudicus in California. The obvious difference is that the “egg” is pinkish to lilac in P. hadriani."
