    Yes, if permission was given, I'd certainly be willing to use it.

    Very nice. Only one was found by me about 10 years ago. The beauty and STENCH was most interesting to me. For years I have been carrying a close rubber lidded bottle hoping I could capture the scent. To me anyway it was the most revolting odour that I encountered in nature. Another thing it is readily identifable. One might possibly identify it as a morel, except the season is not the same.

    I notice it is supposed to be edible, but I have no idea how one could contemplate the possibility.

    Hi Drugan the eggs themselfs dont actualy smell, they have a fishy kind of taste & its only when they grow out from the egg that the smell arrives.
