Shriekers and violet fungi often work together to attract and kill prey. When the shriekers’ hellish racket attracts a curious creature, the violet fungus tries to kill it. Both creatures enjoy the fruits of a successful hunt.
Violet fungi resemble shriekers and are often found growing among them.
A violet fungi’s coloration ranges from purple overall to dull gray or violet covered with purple spots.
A violet fungus flails about with its tentacles at living creatures that come within its reach.
