Collection location: Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dante Fenolio (Dante)

No specimen available

I observed these mushrooms in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN. There were four of them growing from an old piece of bark on the forest floor. The tallest was just over 6mm in height, the shortest 4mm in height. I saw them glowing at night from over 3 meters away on the trail. If anyone could help with an ID, I’d appreciate it.
