Veiled Lady Mushroom (Phallus indusiatus) This edible and rather healthful mushroom is used in Chinese cuisine. It is coated in a greenish-brown slime that contains spores -- the slime attracts flies and insects that help disperse the spores.
The Penny Bun mushroom represents the wild mushroom par excellence. It was given the appropriate nickname 'Penny Bun' because of it's well-baked colour and round shape. Whole caps are excellent grilled!
