Specimens were very wet which may explain why they did not bioluminesce as we had hoped. Note this is not a polypore. Close examination by Dr. Methven (see annotation above) combined with the 2015 DNA analysis confirmed that this specimen is Panellus stipticus. For further information on this species, not this exact specimen, go to Michael Kuo's website: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/panellus_stipticus.html
