Hello Giorgos,
A new fungi for me and quite unusual looking at that. It's shape kind of reminds me of a brain. Very wrinkled texture with many folds and crevices. I like it's creamy orangish color and sharp detail. The low POV worked out perfectly. Just curious as to what the light blue object is just under the base of your fungi?
