Ghost Fungus

The Ghost Fungus is a gilled mushroom noted for its bioluminescent properties.

The Ghost Fungus occurs in southern Australia and Tasmania.

As night falls the Ghost Fungus seems to get whiter and when fully dark can be seen to faintly glow. The exquisite detail can be captured with long exposure photography.
