It's some sort of fungus. There was a thread about it on the OCAU forums, but I can't find it.

Edit: Here is the thread

If you don't have a forums account:

Aseroe rubra

"An unusual tropical member of the ornate stinkhorn family (Clathraceae) is the starfish fungus (Aseroe rubra). Like other stinkhorns, this peculiar fungus emerges from a subterranean "egg" stage. At maturity it has five to ten radiating arms, each divided into two slender "tentacles." A slimy, black spore mass occurs in the center and at the bases of the radiating "tentacles." The spore slime has a fetid odor resembling that of rotting meat. The dark, slimy spore mass has a fetid odor and attracts flies. "
