When: 2011-12-16

Collection location: Thailand [Click for map]

Who: MicheleMorbidelli (MicheleMorbidelli)

No specimen available

I saw them in the low forest in south of Thailand.
There was a river near by.
It was around december 2011.
I knew that it was possible to see them with dark moon after the rain.
A friend of mine who is living in the area told me where to go we find them.
The soil was covered of leafs and the fungus lives on them and on small wood sticks.
The day after i decide to go back with my tend and camp for 3 nights to take photos.

Thank you and welcome to Mushroom Observer. Your bioluminescent fungi have a chance at identification if, and only if, fruiting bodies can be found. One way is to gather as much glowing material as you see and * closely * examine it all under a light source. If you can locate fruiting bodies (aka mushrooms), look at them again in the dark to see what portions do or do not luminesce. The next step will be comparing macro & micro features, the latter requiring a microscope.
