With a resolution signed by Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas now has a State Mushroom. For real. This is a thing. Only two other U.S. states — Minnesota and Oregon — have their own state mushrooms. Texas becomes the third, and its designated fungus is a rare, star-shaped variety known as Chorioactis geaster, also called the "Devil's Cigar" — or, more appropriately for the Lone Star State, the "Texas Star" mushroom. The mushroom typically appears in late fall, emerging as dark brown, fuzzy capsule about three to four inches in length, that splits open like a star when it matures.
