National Geographic has found a group of bioluminescent fungi, "The mushrooms are part of the genus Mycena, a group that includes about 500 species worldwide. Of these only 33 are known to be bioluminescentâ€"capable of producing light through a chemical reaction." The mushrooms were found in the Ribeira Valley Tourist State Park which is SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil.
Implications - There's no trickery here, because the mushrooms really are bioluminescent, which means they have the ability to produce light via chemical reactions. These are part of the genus Mycena, which is a group that has about 500 species worldwide. Not all of them vibrantly light up in the dark because only 33 are known to be bioluminescent.
The mushrooms were found in SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil in the Ribeira Valley Tourist State Park.
