it is the mycelia rather than the mushroom that glows in these temperate bioluminescent Mycena species. That would explain a lot. It might even explain why the Oakland, CA stump that fruited my massive hundreds of pounds of Omphalotus olivascens was also glowing in the dark … Mycena maculata and many many other species also were hosted by that massive euc stump. How do you know which glowed, without DNA analysis of your mycelium?

Gosh, I remember when life was simple. Aaaaaah, no I don’t.

your sense of humor was not excised along with those cloudy corneas!

I am afraid that I would not find this Mycena

I had a cataract surgery on my both eyes and I don’t like to drive at night. However, after my surgery, I caught myself staring at all attractive women, since I had an impression that they would not see me when I didn’t have my glasses on.

any bioluminescence observed by you two?
