A photographic study of extraterrestrial fungusoids found on planet Earth in October 2020.
Dedicated to my friend Susana.
If anyone knows the names of any of them, please let me know.
This intergalactic tentacle embryo is an octopus stinkhorn (Clathrus archeri), also known as devil’s fingers. At the base was a putrid egg full of clear slime. You can watch a video of one hatching here. It is truly the stuff of nightmares.
