Lobster mushroom

Hypomyces lactifluorum

The Lobster mushroom, ''Hypomyces lactifluorum'', contrary to its common name, is not a mushroom, but rather a parasitic ascomycete fungus that grows on certain species of mushrooms, turning them a reddish orange color that resembles the outer shell of a cooked lobster.
