okay here are my nominations for the category Goth Mushroom:
earth tongues (Geoglossum sp.) - produce black club-shaped fruiting structures on soil or decaying wood
devil’s fingers (Clathrus archeri) - a species of stinkhorn, which bursts from an egg-like peridium. stinkhorns produce a foul smell to attract spore spreading insects.
dark velvet boletes (Tylopilus formosus) - a bolete species, meaning it has spore-producing pores rather than gills. as this species rots it changes from matte purple-black to a spongy, wet, entirely black specimen, which smells of rotting fish.
black trumpets (Craterellis cornucopioides) - an edible mushroom species, also known as ‘trumpet of the dead’ or black chanterelles
white basket fungus (Ileodictyon cibarium) - another stinkhorn species. this species is edible before it bursts from its egg-form, and upon bursting it produces an alien-like structure. one of its Māori names is tūtae kēhua (ghost droppings).
witch’s hats (hygrocybe sp.) - initially a glossy orange/yellow, this species’ cap turns to a matte black as it matures, yet the gills remain a striking yellow.
Entoloma melanocephalum - just had to include my tradgoth queen 🖤 simple, elegant, pure goth.
bleeding tooth (Hydnellum peckii) - a toothed fungus, notable for the way the young specimens ‘bleed’ bright red droplets, which contain a pigment known to have anticoagulant properties.
shaggy ink cap (Coprinus comatus) - as this elegant white mushroom matures, it begins to dissolve into a thick black liquid, which is filled with spores. this liquid can be used to make a naturally pigmented black ink. Coprinus comatus is also interesting as it will turn black and dissolve itself within hours after being unearthed.

What did you think of the new sander sides video?
I liked it! I had so much fun with Remus going feral and Logan just having none of his dramatic brattiness 😂
And I'm amazed how accurately they got how intrusive thoughts feel, I was just going
"I know that!" everytime :D
