Billion-year-old fungus found from below Arctic, could open new doors of research

Ourasphaira Giraldae is a fungus that was found in the Canadian region of Arctic by a group of researchers. The newly discovered fungus is around a billion-years-old and the oldest fungus fossil ever found, and that means other multi-cellular lives may have formed around the same time and this can reshape the information about the distant past. It proves that fungi originated much earlier than they previously thought.
