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

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.
