Caption: A species of glow-in-the-dark mushroom, Panellus stipticus. This naturally occurring bio-luminescent mushroom is common in New England forests in the fall. This species lives on partially decayed oak and uses a unique chemical reaction to digest chemicals in the oak that are toxic to other fungi. This glowing mycelium is often called foxfire. This image is part of a series.
