Bioluminescent mushrooms

Filoboletus manipularis

Description:

picturesque clump of small white mushrooms, they generate their own light naturally

Habitat:

tropical rainforest

Notes:

Spotted in Gunung Gading national park. I didn't know these were bioluminescent fungi when I spotted them, or else I would have gone back in the evening. I really wanted to get a photo of glowing fungi on my trip, but I never had the chance.

No problem, Dan, and again thanks for sharing this great spotting. Too bad indeed that you didn't get to see them at night, but even in daylight they are beautiful.

Thanks Jae for the ID and thanks Charlie. I wish I knew what these were at the time. I would have definitely gone back in the evening to get pics of them glowing.
