Clathrus archeri

Aseroe rubra
Commonly known as the Anemone Starfish , this unusual looking fungus is found on soil amongst leaf litter. The brown gleba in the centre of the fruitbody attracts insects such as flies which transport the spores to aid in reproductive success. It was the first Australian fungus to be formally described. This was from a specimen taken at Recherche Bay in Southern Tasmania. Photo by Beth Heap.
