I read that there are at least 3 bioluminescent mushroom species that can be found in Singapore. Mycena manipularis is probably the more common one which could emit a greenish light only visible in the dark. Glad to find a relatively big cluster on a rotten log. From this image, I gather that, when these mushrooms are young, both their caps and stems are bright green. As they age and dry up, their caps lose its glow faster than their stems.
