Pink Pagoda Fungus - Podoserpula miranda
What you see in this picture is a spectacular Pink Pagoda Fungus, species Podoserpula miranda (Amylocorticiales - Amylocorticiaceae) discovered in the Pacific island archipelago of New Caledonia in 2009, and described in 2012.
Podoserpula miranda not only has a highly striking color for a fungus but also an architecture that is especially fascinating to scientist, containing a unique set of six mushroom caps that are centered on one stalk and decrease in size as they near the top.
