Clathrus archeri - commonly known as the stinking octopus or the devil's fingers, is a fungus that has global distribution.

Then the arms develop, revealing a pinkish-red interior covered with a dark olive spore. In maturity, it smells like a rotten body. He performs in Australia, New Zealand, California, USA, South Africa and Europe. He comes from Australia and has spread to other parts of the world. In Europe, it was first observed in 1914 in France. In Poland, its occurrence was observed for the first time in 1975.
