Hope you had the opportunity to view these luminous fungi at night. These are in really good condition so should give a great display. They are often providing habitat and food for hungry invertebrates and therefore can look rather ragged. This species is poisonous.

Yes, they did give a great display Pam. I took this photo Unidentified on 27 Apr 2019 before the moon rose. The fluorescence was quite visible to the naked eye, but this photo took a long exposure time (216sec).
