A small, luminescent, gilled mushroom native to the US mostly found on the East Coast on deciduous hardwood logs and stumps. The gills of Glowing Panellus glow brightly in complete darkness. A great conversation mushroom, for educational trails demonstrating bioluminescence. Not edible, this small mushroom can also dry out and rehydrate repeatedly between rainfall, and persists for months unlike other gilled mushrooms.
