    Default Strange fungus

    I found this strange fungus in a knot hole in a tree in the garden. Does anyone know what it is? It looks like lychees.

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Looks like a Morel, if so, very tasty.

    It does not look like any morel I've ever seen and, of course, no mushroom should be eaten unless you're 100% certain what it is... but you know that already.

    A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

    This fungus I think either belong to basidiomycetes or deutermycetes group of fungi group of protista , but even then it is suggested not to eat them in any way without the help of mycologist because these can be poisonous and hence dangerous. thanks

    I think it may be shaggy scalycap after trawling through lots of fungus photos.
