Omphalotus nidiformis – Ghost Fungus

On dead wood and living trees. This very large, generally funnel-shaped agaric grows in overlapping clusters. A stout white stem supports a white to cream cap tinted yellow, blue and black in the centre. The white gills run part-way down the stem and produce white spores. This luminous fungus glows white in the dark.
