Fermi Mosshroom

One of several new Mosshrooms to colonize the shallows, the 'Fermi Mosshroom split off from its ancestor and colonized Fermi’s polar coast. 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. It feeds on the remains of the few large organisms that call this place home, as well as on marine snow. To cope with the cold, it has a thicker shell than its ancestor, causing its shell to be opaque—losing the “fiery” appearance its ancestor had. Like its ancestor, it lives a short life but produces clouds of glittery spores.
