    Hi,
    Can anyone identify which type of mushroom this is?
    Also, would it be able to sting a cup coral that it can touch when fully expanded?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the confirmation!
    What about its stinging capability?

    Looks like quite a few people have touched theirs too hard and have had mesenterial filament stuck in their hand. Also can sting frogspawn and other corals.
