Botany picture #67: Aseroe rubra
I have never had the opportunity to learn much about fungi beyond the classification into Ascoymcota and Basidiomycota and a few theoretical details about their life cycle. The point is, I never had a course on the systematics or identification of fungi, so I really do not have a good overview. This truly bizarre species, however, is really easy to recognize. Aseroe rubra, the "starfish fungus", Australia, 2011.
