Asterophora lycoperdoides growing on old Russula nigricans below Chari monastery.
This weird fungus grows as a parasite on other mushrooms, mainly on Russula. Its gills are nearly absent. Asexual spores are produced on the mushrooms cap, cloning itself. The spores of Asterophora are star-shaped, hence the name star bearer. They are part of the Lyophyllaceae.
