Bizarre!

That's a really awesome fungus. When I first saw the photo, I thought someone was playing a joke, but apparently it's a genuine example of nature at her weirdest.

That is one Amazingly Beautifull looking fungus Gen!

One I have never encountered before.

Seems it is called "Hydnellum peckii" Or "Bleeding Tooth Fungus"

Quote from Link, "Later the fruitbody becomes tougher and teeth develop on the underside. This common and widespread species fruits under conifers."

A mushroom with teeth!!! :o

It almost looks as if it has attacked something & become covered in its victims blood :P

Also I wonder how "Common & Widespread" this fungus may be? I am off to research this a bit further to see what I can find out B)

Thanks for sharing Genesis, Truly Amazing.

Found this info on the Peckii thru wiki,

Quote "This liquid contains a mushroom pigment called atromentin, which has anticoagulant properties similar to heparin." Very Interesting?

Look here for some Intreging info,

Here is another similar fungus.

"Hydnellum diabolus"

Apparently you can tell these two apart by having a bit of a sniff!

Peckii is odourless, While Hydnellum Diabolus is said to have an almost sweet resinous odour!

They both look so alike! Seems it would be very easy to confuse them if it wasnt for the different odour!

From what I can tell It is mostly found in European and North America areas?

As a side note, Is it just me or does anyone else think that FRESH Subs smell the same or similar to Windex?

Finally I have another person that agrees :worship:

I think I have mentioned this on the forums before?

Anyway, I have had this discussion with a few friends also. And every time, I have been met with smirks, jeers and comments of Disbelief :rolleyes:

It has therefore been decided, Untill I provide a sample of fresh shrooms and a spray of Windex in a glass to compare it with, I am to be branded as delusional. :lol:

Thankyou divinersage, With your permission I shall be using your post as a backup defence against my friends! :P

Also to add to the conspiracy, Windex is Blue!!!!

I think you guys can See what I am getting at here hey??? :wink: Haha

Grammer edit.

Could be another method for determining ID? Take a windex-laced hanky out in the field with you while hunting as a reference guide? :lol: Christ I wish the hunting season weren't over - I still havent found one :(

You could be referring to Lipstick Mold – Sporendonema purpurescens (Geotrichum candidium), or Pink Mold; Red Bread Mold – Neurospora.
