Observation 177337: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2014-09-07
(20.6313° -98.604° 2097m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On oak leaves.

The mycelium is bioluminescent, but the mushrooms are not. Glowing leaves are scattered throughout the woods, and occasionally there are large patches of thousands of glowing leaves.

One collection was found several feet off the ground, apparently killing the leaf.
