The Jack O’ Lantern mushroom, Omphalotus illudens/olearius. This beautiful orange mushroom often grows in large clumps around the base of hardwoods, and is often abundant. This is a very toxic mushroom and is occasionally consumed in error by inexperienced mushroom pickers who think they’ve found the mother lode of Chanterelles. This autumn mushroom is said to glow in the dark due to the presence of a chemical called luciferin.
