Aseroe rubra

Published 29 Sep 2013

Aseroe rubra, commonly known as the "sea anemone fungus." We found it in a forest clearing in Kauai. Although it did not smell bad when I picked it, as a member of the stinkhorns it typically smells like rotting animal flesh and attracts flies to disperse its spores. This was a highlight for me. I'd only seen this in photos.
