Excelent shot and well exposed. All you need now is the spider somewhere in there.
Excelent composition.

You know my ignorance in fungi, I can not help for the ID ;-(
But I begin to be less ignorant in the world of photography...
This one is excellent to my eyes, Felipe.
Thank you and have a nice weekend!

Hi Felipe!
I'm sorry I can't help with ID but I think I've posted very similiar subject few months ago. Beautifull capture. You mastered pictures of fungi textures - always very detailed, clear and not OE. Same this time. Second thing is DOF - perfect. Talking about details - I love those pieces of spider's web connected to fungi. Next - composition. Great effect with vertical, blurred trees on BG in contrast to horizontally placed fungus. Light and colours complete the picture. Superb Felipe! Only note is for me too short but I understand that it is so short in cause of ID problems.

Ola Felipe.
Esta excelente.
Tanto o titulo como a foto.
Muito bem visto.

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour ce champignon "extraterrestre" ;-) Bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien adaptée. J'espère qu'on trouvera son nom...
Fun & Well Done !

Nice one Felipe! It looks like a bedside lamp. Excellent macro, showing even the cobwebs. Well shown. Good job!

Felipe, Really like your use of this acronym for your title..Catchy! I can see it has its anti-gravity drive working! ;-)) Great DOF, light and details..Very well done!!

What a superb capture Felipe! I am becoming more intrigued by this subject as a result of seeing so many wonderful shots on this site. Great composition, detail and lighting. Your POV is also well placed giving us a fine view, and the bonus is webbing on the underside of the fine (as yet UFF), specimen. Thank you for a wonderful posting.

Very interesting photo Felipe,, very good made excellent mushrooms.

I am afraid that if you don't know Felipe chances are slim... This is an exceptional photo even by your high standard I got used too. I think what makes this special is the composition and the fact that the growth out of the trunk adds a special impact. Exposure and DOF as usual perfect. The spider webs add a nice touch. Did you find the spider? :) Fantastic capture, very well done.

Mycena sp., most probably M. galericulata, but impossible to fully identify without microscope. Beautiful and interesting composition, PoV. Nice pic, congratulations!
