Don't tell me these were those dark ones we were looking at that, at that stage weren't luminous??!! If so I need to change my id of them.........

Yes that’s them... they are much more typical now - a week later! And glowing too!

Well, well well............... How deceptive are they? It shows though just how much variation is found within a single species and that these ones have to reach a more mature stage before they become luminous. I wonder if that has something to do with the maturity of the spores? You can learn something new every day. Thanks for that. Would you be able to correct that id I put on them in their immature form please? I bet they are glowing and feeling very pleased with themselves to boot...........

It would be great to put together a series of images showing how this fungus has changed as it matured.
