The eerie fungus known as ‘Dead Man’s Fingers’ is aptly named, fitting its unsettling appearance.

If mushrooms are nothing more than a pizza topping for you, the Facebook group Mushroomcore might leave you pleasantly surprised. Turns out there are more mushrooms out there than just champignons and fly amanitas – and some of them are outright terrifying. A little while ago, Facebook user Regan Daniels shared photos of a bizarre mushroom called Xylaria polymorpha, aka Dead Man’s Fingers, and you’ll quickly realize why it’s called that way. Members of the group couldn’t believe what they were seeing and some even called the pictures fake – but Regan assured they were very much real.
