The Fungus is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

This oddly colored artifact may look dangerous at first glance, but in reality it's a radiation sponge that imprisons it within its jagged shell. But by doing so, it emanates an odorless and colorless gas that, when inhaled, makes bleeding a far more serious medical condition.
