  3. Green fungi - who'd have thought? I wonder whether the color comes from chlorophyll, like green plants - fungi are not supposed to have chlorophyll. Posted 2 months ago

''Gliophorus psittacinus'', commonly known as the Parrot Toadstool or Parrot Waxcap, is a colourful member of the genus ''Gliophorus'', found across Northern Europe. It was formerly known as ''Hygrocybe psittacina'', but a molecular phylogenetics study found it to belong in the genus ''Gliophorus''. It had already been placed in ''Gliophorus'', but it had been considered a synonym of ''Hygrocybe''.
