There are still many species we haven't yet discovered ...
Including this plant, Clathrus archeri.
- KAMI has gathered information from an article in littlethings.com about this weird-looking type of mushroom that is known as "devil's fingers"
This mushroom originates from New Zealand, Tasmania and Australia. Devil's fingers has the looks that has never been seen before which makes it stands out from the rest of the mushroom.
Usually, mushrooms are produced above the soil - but for this one, it hatches from an egg-like sack.
Its hatching process is astonishing in a very odd way.
Based on Wikipedia, the young fungus erupts from an egg by forming into four to seven elongated slender arms initially erect and attach at the top. The arms then unfolds to reveal a pinkish-red interior covered with a dark-olive spore-containing gleba. In maturity it smells of putrid flesh.”
See the beauty that lies beneath its horror:
