Mutinus (order Phallales) A genus of fungi that form fruit bodies resembling those of Phallus species. In Mutinus caninus (dog stinkhorn) the fruit body has a pink or orange tinge, and the cap is initially covered with a dark green slime containing the spores. The odour is faintly foetid, but less so than in Phallus impudicus. Mutinus species are found on the ground in woods, and are widespread.
