Flush it Friday: Sac Fungi
With the release of the first episode of The Last of Us last week, I’ve got mushrooms on my mind. Everybody knows it was Cephalic Carnage that discovered the zombie ant-generating Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, but have you heard of the phylum they belong to (Ascomycota)? They’re more commonly known as “sac fungi,” which as one can imagine, were named for none other than the Sacred Son himself, Dane Cross. (It’s just science.) Along with causing skin infections in animals, the plant-pathogenic ascomycetes have some band name-ass titles: Apple Scab, Rice Blast, Black Knot, and The Powdery Mildews, to name a few. Maybe mushroom metal will be the next big fad with Napalm!
