Funky fungi


March 2019

  • My name is Oliver and I found these fungi all around my school.

    The one that looks like an alien spaceship is called an earthstar fungi or (geastrum pectinatum). It is a type of puffball, and it is my favorite one.

    The ones that look like nuts are birdsnest fungi. The reason it is called that is because when they open up they look like tiny black eggs in a birds nest.

    I don't know what the stringy one is but I think it looks really cool.
