Rare octopus stinkhorn on Texel island

Octopus stinkhorn

The octopus stinkhorn is in the Netherlands a rare fungus.

From southern Europe, it spread to the north (because of climate change?); it has by now reached Denmark.

According to Ecomare museum on Texel island, a few years ago the octopus stinkhorn showed for the first time in the Muy nature reserve in the north of Texel. It still occurs there. On animal dung, like elsewhere.
