That is awesome... I always knew shrooms had extra-terrestrial origins and this proves it.



Thanks for posting this link...
Happy Halloween!

Very cool.  I wonder how hard it would be to cultivate them?

I wonder what the mechanism is behind the bio-illumination though.  I will have to read up on it.  Judging by some of their relatives up North, they'd probably have a stem built like a glow stick.  Full of water.  Wonder if a bacteria within are providing the bio-luminance?  From what I am recently starting to find around here within the Mycena species, on a dark gloomy day, they seem to really capture the light an pop out or almost fluoresce.  Doesn't surprise me if they had lost the ability to glow 24/7 or are capable of adapting that convergent trait. 

I just don't see too many of these small mushrooms being eaten or looked for by any of the local wildlife (zoochory dispersal) for spore propagation.  (Can you use plant seed dispersal mechanism terminology on spore dispersal when pertaining to fugi?)    Then again, would I notice if something else had picked these tiny things?
