The Basket Stinkhorn (Clathrus ruber), has been found in a city garden in Sutton. A relative of the more widely known stinkhorn, the spores of this mushroom are dispersed by flies attracted to the smell of rotting carrion it releases. This is an interesting discovery, as the only previous record for Ireland is from Clontarf in 1982. It may be more widespread, but as the fruiting body only lasts a bit over 24 hours, it is very rarely seen. The fungus has probably been introduced into Ireland and other parts of Northern Europe, possibly through the movement of mulch or other materials used in gardening and landscaping.
