A friend of mine shared a link of some beautiful fungi:
http://imgur.com/a/Dii3H. I was intrigued by the curious critter below -- it seems to have honed the power of buckyball geometry, presumably much before we Humans ever did (search: Buckminsterfullerene to learn about a feat of chemical engineering).
Google reverse-image search almost got me the answer I needed, but no species name.
I've asked friends on Facebook with no answers yet.
What is the name of this species of fungus?

EDIT: I'm an idiot... the Imgur had species names, thus answering my question, post-mortem. Thanks @skymningen for pointing that out.

Looks very similar to
Clathrus ruber fungus.
Be careful, it is poisonous.
