My entry into The Botanical Group's Mushroom challenge is th very strange looking Veiled Lady Mushroom.
This delicate and strange mushroom can be found in gardens and woodlands in southern Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Australia. This edible and rather healthful mushroom is used in Chinese cuisine. While the lacy skirt is what draws our eyes, the mushroom actually uses the cap to draw attention too. It is coated in a greenish-brown slime that contains spores -- the slime attracts flies and insects that help disperse the spores.
