Fucafungicae or Kelp Fungi is a family of funghi growing in the deep sea of the planet Panthalassa. They feed off sulphuric compounds from subaquatic geysirs and volcanoes, with many species of Kelp Funghi growing dense forests that are the foundation of a complex ecosystem. Several species of Kelp Funghi are also cultivated as food by the Bohon.

DescriptionEdit

All Kelp Fungi grow extended vertical stalks and large leaves from a mycel that is rooted in the ground solely to provide anchorage. They generally absorb the sulphuric compounds which provide nutrition through these leaves.

Several species of Kelp Fungi grow bioluminiscent fruit to attract animals and propagate their seeds.
