Stink Horn

Well, I added a new one for me. I could smell these, literally, from 30 yards away easy. I'd describe the smell as button mushrooms that have just started to turn. Not exactly nasty but not exactly pleasant either. For approximate size reference, the wood chips where they are growing are generally 1" to 3" long. I know some of the "street names" but they are not welcome on the family website. After just a quick look I am pretty certain this one is Phallus ravenelii but I am still very open to suggetions...
