No, not the classic sci-fi movie, but probably the most un-fungus-looking fungus, White Brain (Exidia thuretiana)
White Brain, one of the jellies…
Well I did promise you a potential alien… 🙂
And you did not fail to deliver! Ew! Can you imagine stepping on that thing in your bare feet? Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Or to get even grosser… Watch out for the dinosaurs… currently struck by a flu epidemic!
Augh Chew!!!!! Yuck!
Sorry. And right at my lunchtime too! 🙂
At least it doesn’t appear to be wielding a ray gun. 😉
Not that we can see, anyway 🙂 🙂 🙂
Now that’s just scary.
That is definitely in the eww category! I thought the same as Violet…
Well done, Madam!
I thank you. I was lining up the shot and my daughter was going, Mum, that’s not a fungus. But it is. 🙂

Listen to your Mum, girl! She knows her fungi!
We do sometimes… dispute. Then I’ll get home, look it up, and if I’m wrong I’ll text her with the actual name.
Makes life more interesting, I say.
Absolutely. And on the QT, I quite like it when I’m wrong. Doesn’t do to always be right. It will eventually spark resentment
No, it doesn’t do to always be right – resentment from others and next thing you know, you have the title of Smarty Pants and not in a flattering way 😉
Yea well, I’m oftn wrong… and will be the first to admit it. Mainly cos I prefer the correct infomation to be given, no matter who gives it, Gosh, makes me sound prissy 🙂
I won’t hold it against you 😉
And yes, much better to provide the proper info
It looks like the stuff that is squeezed out of a cyst! You brought us a good one Crispina! 😀
Thank you for your comment… I have to have one of those removed on Wednesday. I shall be thinking of that fungus now. 🙂
You’ll be numbed up I hope? 🙂
Oh yes. I asked if I coud watch but… it’s not in a place that I can easily see… beside my ear
Good luck today. I hope it an in out procedure and you get home safely.
It should be. But they want to bring someone with me to escort me home in a car. But they can swivel. I’ll get a taxi and be done. Such expectations these hospitals have. Wouldn’t it be nice to know someone with a car who would take time of work to accompany me. Hah.
I know. I feel the same way. I’ve had a standing offer to do anything I want and they’ll leave work to do things BUT no. Enough of me. You take care today. I’ll be thinking about you.
Lucky you. And thank you. Though it is a very minor op.
I wouldn’t take advantage of the offer unless I was unconscious LOL Minor or not know someone cares. THAT”S ME!
As happens, I got the bus home. And now the feeling returns. Flipping heck, that’s sore 🙂
I hope you’re in less pain by now. Are you ok? or maybe you’re getting some sleep?
Painkillers are double-edged. kill the pain, make me sleepy.
So did you take any? You should be sleeping to help the healing. No?
Well, I beg to differ with you all, but it looks like a blob of ice cream that fell off someone’s cone. Mostly vanilla, but with a few walnuts — and maybe a mint leaf — in it.
Wonderful. Ice cream, of course. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Yech, how wonderfully disgusting! Brain blob, indeed. I would probably not even have recognized that as a mushroom, although I’d be hard-pressed to guess at what else it might be. A plant disease maybe? Something that belongs in a horror or dystopian movie!
My daughter was puzzled; wouldn’t believe me when I said it was fungus. But there’s the name of it. They come in all shapes and forms. And this autumn was exceptional for how many oddities thrust forth.
