Luminous Mushrooms (Mycena Chlorophos) at Booyong, Northern New South Wales. Yep, that's right, they glow in the dark!

The Mycena lux-coeli mushrooms, known locally as shii no tomobishi-dake (literally, "chinquapin glow mushrooms"), sprout from fallen chinquapin trees. As they grow, a chemical reaction involving luciferin (a light-emitting pigment contained within the mushrooms) occurs, causing them to glow a ghostly green.
