Q: What kind of fungi that could shine in the night? Could we see it only in Taiwan? Is it edible? Why could it shine?
A: This fungi that could shine in the night, we called “fluorescence fungi “( Mycena chlorophos(Berk.&Curt.)Sacc.). It usually grows at the low-elevation bamboo forest or at the dry fallen wood.Except in Taiwan, it scatters in Japan, Thailand and Java---etc.This kind of fungi will shine green-fluorescence light which is stronger than other kinds of fungi shine during the night especially in its gills. Up to now, no one knows whether it is edible or not. Since there aren't any related researches, we couldn't understand more about its “Shine mechanism”.
