Yes, Max, I removed it from that mission. After a little more research I are that this is a variety of Earthstar, or Myriostoma. They are quite fabulous in form, indeed.

Wow, really intriguing form! TerryBerry, since this is a fungi and not a plant, could you please remove it from the Toxic and Medicinal Plants mission?
