No problem, ctaklis. I haven't spotted a morel yet myself, but from what I've read older stinkhorn specimens are easily mistaken for morels. I can see now why :)
Thanks Jae. I think you are right... i will fix the name immediately. I didn't see the base and i identify it only from the upset side of the mushroom.
Nice one, ctaklis. Though I'm pretty sure the one in your picture isn't a morel. Late spring would be the season for Morchella vulgaris. And in your photos the fungus has brittle stem and at the base of the stem you can remainings of a volva. That's why I think your spotting is a stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus).
