Alien life?

Alien life?

The photo was taken on Mount Warning, Wollumbin National Park, NSW, Australia. The photo was taken at 5am on my way down the mountain. I went up in the dark to see the sunrise. Unfortunately it was very cloudy at dawn. It had started to clear when the photo was taken. On the way up the journey was very dark but there where places with tiny mushrooms that glowed in the dark! When I discovered this 'thing' I had to take a photo. I have several more hi-res photos. It was about 3 inches tall. I don't remember it smelling. If you look at the photo you can see what appears to be a fly on the 'specimen'. Maybe the fly was stuck. I don't remember seeing the fly when the photo was taken.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
