Weird Mushroom.
« on: June 24, 2013, 08:21:22 PM »
Smooth Cage Fungus





Apparently it's a common enough fungus in NZ and Australia, but I've only ever seen pictures of them before. Then I see this one growing under the hedge beside my car this morning.

Weird looking thing, you would swear it was a hunk of old polystyrene foam  :-\

Not hungry enough to find out  :D

It appears about as appetising as a chunk of mouldy polystyrene.... Suspect it would taste the same...
