Asero? rubra A stinkhorn from New Zealand. The whole fruit body is pink, arising from an oval white ?egg? with the glebal disk showing dark, sticky, spore mass, the ?tentacles? are strong reddish colour grouped in pairs, normally up to as much as 10cm in height. This is a very very rare fungus, only one record found outside greenhouses in the whole of the northern hemisphere. Found on mixed woodland litter on acid soil. It is native to New Zealand and Australia and other areas in the southern hemisphere. Presumably it was imported on garden plants that had been introduced from the southern hemisphere.
