I love this headline: Rare Naked Ladies Crocus Infected with Even Rarer Smutty Fungus

Who knew botany and mycology could be so naughty? Naked ladies and smut have come to light in the U.K., but not in the way you might think.

Yes, you can get your minds out of the gutter. We’re talking about the rare plant called the naked ladies crocus (Colchicum autumnale) and the even rarer sooty-black smut fungus (Urocystis colchici).

The smutty fungus is a legally protected species in the U.K.

Also, there's a Cotswold Fungus Group, and they discovered this month’s fungus.
