Many thanks, you said it right, dear Prashant ... and there is also a typo in my query -- it should have been Phallus indusiatus !!

At Wikipedia, it says Phallus indusiatus was transferred to Dictyophora indusiata ... but got re-classified as Phallus indusiatus ...
... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallus_indusiatus

Let us wait for comments regarding the status of the name.

Regards.
