    Unidentified Growing Object in my garden

    I found a scattering of a strange, red carnivorous plant that puts me in mind of the Rafflesia sp. Flies are attracted to it, but I didn't notice any rotten smell. I have not been able to find a picture of anything else like it. They range from 3cm - 5cm across, and are grow almost flat on the mulch. If anyone knows what they are I'll be stoked! Thanks All, Bec.

    It is a fungus. Member of the stinkhorn family:

    Thankyou so much Pyro. The answer and the link you provided were perfect. It seems others in the region that I live in are getting them pop up in their gardens also. Well, it's spring after all. I actually think they're more interesting than most of the plants. Cheers! From Bec in Oz.
