Darwin Mosshroom

One of several new Mosshrooms to colonize the shallows, the Darwin Mosshroom split off from its ancestor and colonized Darwin’s polar coastline. Like a Terran mushroom, it can sometimes be found seemingly on its own long after an organism rotted away, feeding on the remnants long after they've vanished from plain sight. To cope with the cold, its spores are hardy and do not germinate over the dark winters. Genetic drift has resulted in a pointier shape, with smaller facets towards the bottom. Otherwise, it is just like its ancestor in every way; it grows in large groups encrusting dead organisms, lives a short life but produces clouds of glittery spores, and appears to have a “fiery” core when held to light.
