I got a collection of this yesterday

And made a few spore prints. If anyone is serious about cultivating this I could drop one in the mail. Alonso is working on the glowing Mycenas so I give most of my collections to him.

two described (M. asterina from Brazil & M. kentingensis from China) and one undescribed species in M. sect. Sacchariferae known to luminesce. That is not to say that there aren’t others in the section whose luminescent properties have yet to be observed. Micro, as usual, is king. Save this and anything else that glows.
