Seven species of Mycena are reported as luminescent, representing specimens collected in Belize, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Japan (Bonin Islands), Malaysia (Borneo) and Puerto Rico. Four of them represent new species (Mycena luxaeterna, M. luxarboricola, M. luxperpetua, M. silvaelucens) and three represent new reports of luminescence in previously described species (M. aff. abieticola, M. aspratilis, M. margarita). Mycena subepipterygia is synonymized with M. margarita, and M… 
New luminescent mycenoid fungi (Basidiomycota, Agaricales) from São Paulo State, Brazil
Four species of mycenoid fungi are reported as luminescent on the basis of specimens collected from São Paulo State, Brazil, and two represent new reports of luminescence in previously described species.
A new bioluminescent species of Mycena sect. Exornatae from Kerala State, India.
Phylogenetic analyses based on ITS rDNA sequences using maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood methods support M. deeptha as a distinct species belonging to a clade containing M. chlorophos, a wellknown luminescent species of sect.
The Amazonian luminescent Mycena cristinae sp. nov. from Brazil
Morphological data support M. cristinae as a different species compared to previously described taxa and the luminescence is evident in the basidiomata (especially the stipe) and in the mycelium on the substrate.
New species and records of bioluminescent Mycena from Mexico
ABSTRACT Seven species of bioluminescent fungi are recorded from the cloud forests in Mexico. Six represent new species belonging to the genus Mycena, whereas Mycena globulispora is a new
Four new bioluminescent taxa of Mycena sect. Calodontes from Peninsular Malaysia
This is the first published photographic documentation of bioluminescent basidiomes of members of Mycena sect.
A new species of Mycena sect. Exornatae and some taxonomic observations.
The wide, loop-like clamp connections of M. snigdha are remarkably similar to those of species of Mycena sect.
Erratum to: Mycena kentingensis, a new species of luminous mushroom in Taiwan, with reference to its culture method
Phylogenetic analyses by Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods showed that M. kentingensis is close to M. stylobates and M. adscendens, a new luminous mushroom discovered in the tropical forest of Kenting National Park in Taiwan.
Molecular Investigation of the Bioluminescent Fungus Mycena chlorophos: Comparison between a Vouchered Museum Specimen and Field Samples from Taiwan
This study has raised questions about the mechanisms of long distance fungal spore dispersal, and suggests possible future research in taxonomic and interdisciplinary study of Mycena chlorophos.
Fungos agaricóides (agaricales, Basidiomycota) da reserva biológica saltinho, Pernambuco: diversidade e aspectos moleculares
Based on the phylogenetic analysis of the LSU region by the Bayesian method and by the performed BLASTn with the sequences of the regions ITS and LSU, it was possible to confirm the identity of Collybia aurea and to support their determinations as new taxa to science.
Mycena margarita (Murrill) Murrill, 1916 (Basidiomycota: Agaricales: Mycenaceae): a bioluminescent agaric first recorded in Brazil
Mycena margarita , a widespread agaric in the Caribbean region and recently recognized as frequently bioluminescent, is reported for the first time in Brazil, occurring on decaying wood in the
