This is kind of like a "mushroom-hole" versus a wormhole for time travel. Today is actually May 4, 2022 (May the 4th be with you day). Last month, I started the Wordle Myco adventure where I take a look at each day's Wordle Word from a mushroom perspective. I started out in April of 2022 on the journey and was looking at each day's word as it happened. I was being all clever and such wanting to combine the internet interest with Wordle along with an exploration of mushrooms. I'm still going to look at today's Wordle in real-time but thought I use the "mushroom-hole" to travel back in time to the very beginning of Wordle and start looking from Day Zero how each day's word relates to the fungi-kingdom. I looks like Wordle started on June 19, 2021 and the first Wordle word was CIGAR. This is an easy one...
The mushroom species Chorioactis geaster is commonly referred to as the devil's cigar or the Texas star in the United States while in Japan it is called kirinomitake.
Yes, the immature or young fruiting body of this mushroom looks like a cigar. The mature fruiting body then splits open to reveal what look like leaves or a star.
Oddly, this mushroom is found in Texas, Oklahoma and Japan. The mushrooms are found at the same latitude but separated by 6,800 miles between Japan and Texas. The Japanese specimens can be grown in culture. Thus far, the material from Texas has not been successfully germinated on artificial media. Although not poisonous, the Texas Star is not a sought after mushroom for eating.
