Truly magical mushrooms


Incredible! Seven new species of bioluminescent fungi have been discovered. “Dennis Desjardin, a mycologist at San Francisco State University who has discovered more than 200 species of fungi to date, and his co-authors found the mushrooms in Belize, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia and Puerto Rico.”

Desjardin believes these fungi developed their glow-in-the-dark capability to spread their spores.  Animals are attracted to them, etc.
