Traveller’s tale: With the onset of the rains there is a profusion of fungii in the wilderness in Kodagu. This was unusual, one that I hadn’t seen before. The vivid colour and the lace-like structure was striking. Another of nature’s wonders. A little research online and the closest I got was the Longnet Stinkhorn, though it has white coloured lace around it.
