Technically this is from Montenegro rather than UK but hopefully someone can help.
Thank you in advance.

Hi
what is the difference between "technically from Montenegro" and "from Montenegro"? ;)

A lot of the back issues of Czech Mycology are now available online. If you download http://www.czechmycology.org/_cm/CM484.pdf you will find (starting at page 273) a useful conspectus on the genus Phallus.

This would seem to be P. hadriani, in the UK a sand-dune species; see page 279 of that paper, the statement "Pinkish or violet pigments
present in volva, mycelial strand and partly in receptaculum" is key.

regards
Chris

"Technically" is my way of tiptoeing respectfully into an unfamiliar forum on an unacquainted subject, filled with unusual people! ;)

Thank you for the identification, Chris. Very much appreciated

For those who are unsure what the P stands for, the full name is Phallus hadriani :D

Clearly not, but now I have! :roll:
Anyway, it's now a bit more obvious
