Critter of the Week Fishy Pouch Fungus

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:35 pm on 19 March 2021

The rare and endangered Fishy Pouch Fungus smells a bit like rotten fish and looks like a pouch. It is only found on Banks Peninsula in native podocarp forest and is the perfect critter to highlight International Day of Forests.
