Observation 208100: Agaricales sensu lato
When: 2015-06-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At first I thought it was Mycena margarita but after reading all about that these are larger. Perhaps 1 cm in diameter but they seem to get a bit bigger. I did not wait for them to glow because all the three different bioluminescent fungus I know here normally glow immediately, they glow 24/7. So I will go again and wait for some minutes and see what happens. That is if they are still alive. I took these pictures on Friday night and Saturday before dawn so they may be gone by tomorrow night.
Since my description of fungus is limited to my very basic knowledge of them I try to get as many pictures as possible so expert eyes may be able to check where they are growing and what is around. Also, I do my best to photograph the creatures that are found on the fungus or around them. I will probably have to start using some object to compare sizes. After taking more than 1000 pictures I have edited some 500 pictures of mushrooms so far.
If I could get pay for doing this I would be 24/7 on it but I do have to work so I can’t always go check on each species and some times they are gone when I have the chance to go into the woods again.
A will start using a regular #2 pencil for the next pictures unless someone has a better idea.
