The bridal veil stinkhorn (scientific name: phalllus indusiatus) is one of the most unique species of fungi found in Borneo and goes by many other common names such as Crinoline stinkhorn, Long net stinkhorn, Veiled lady, bamboo fungus, and bamboo pith. It can be found in tropical environments where their ideal growing conditions are gardens, woodlands, and rich soil with well-rotted plant matter. It is able to grow up to 25 centimeters tall with a bell-shaped cap on a stalk that is between 1.5 and 4 cm wide.
The bridal veil stinkhorn is different from the rest of the other fungi. Instead of using the wind to spread its spores, it produces a sticky spore mass on its tip to attract flies and bees to come and disperse the spores.
These stinkhorns are also edible and are sold dried. They are cultivated in China and are considered a delicacy that is rich in protein, carbohydrates, and dietary fiber.
