Fungi Research

Fungi Research

Glowing Fungi is mentioned inside caverns in the book, The First Men in The Moon. So I researched into different species of fungi.
Fly Amanita. (Amanita Muscaria)

Yellow Fairy Cups.  (Bisporella  Citrina)

Stag-horn Fungus. (Calocera viscosa)

Fairy Ink-Cap. (Coprinellus Disseminatus)

Artist's Fungus. (Ganoderma Applanatum)

Chicken of The Woods. (Laetiporus Sulphureus)

Pholiota Sp. 

Oyster Mushroom. (Pleurotus Ostreatus)

Candlestick Fungus. (Xylaria Hypoxylon)

Bitter Oyster. (Panellus Stipticus)
This type of fungus is bioluminescent which means it glows in the dark.
