2. Wrinkled peach (Rhodotus palmatus)

Also known as the netted rhodotus or the rosy veincap (so Victorian!), this gorgeously odd creature is beyond photogenic. But maybe not all the time? As the mushroom expert notes: "When it's being picturesque, Rhodotus palmatus is a stunning and unmistakeable mushroom – or so they tell me. I wouldn't know, since I only find it looking as though it has a droopy, slimy hangover." Awww, poor wrinkled peach.
