12. The Marasmius Haematocephalus, or ‘parachute mushroom.’
Shades of baby pink and donning a rather adorable domed umbrella, these beauties call Puerto Rico home. They can range from tall and lean to short and stout! However, Parachute mushrooms always sport a two-toned underbelly.
13. The Cyathus Striatus, or ‘fluted bird’s nest.’
While located all over the world, these particularly colorful mushrooms range from dark navy to a powder blue! The insides that resemble ‘bird’s eggs?’ They’re actually mini spores referred to as peridioles.
14. The Panus Fasciatus, or ‘hair trumpet.’
Tiny little strands dotting the cap give these colorful mushrooms their name! Attaching to any rotting wooden surface, the panus fasciatus will only keep its pale violet hue for a few weeks. After that, a rather dingy, dark brown color sets in.
15. The Rhodotus Palmatus, or ‘wrinkled peach.’
This uncommon, semi-wrinkled mushroom is defined by its circumboreal distribution and grows throughout eastern North America, northern Africa, Europe, and Asia. Sadly, it’s become an endangered species over the years!
