 Anemone Stinkhorn Aseroe rubra is one of the delightfully stinky Phallaceae family of fungi. The species is commonly found in temperate eastern Australian gardens that have been mulched with wood chip, as in this photo.

This photo made me think of the Rafflesia. Any relation, even remote, apart from the smell.

Only about as closely related as we are I should think. The stinkhorn is a fungi, and fungi turn out to be more closely related to animals than plants.
