(from Greek μύκης (mykes, mukos) “fungus” and Latin (toxicum) “poison”) a toxic secondary metabolite produced by organisms of the fungi kingdom, commonly known as moulds. The term ‘mycotoxin’ is usually reserved for the toxic chemical products produced by fungi that readily colonise crops.

Panellus stipticus, aka “Bitter Oyster Fungus” is a common and widely distributed (Asia, Europe, North America, Australia) species of fungus that grows on decaying deciduous trees, especially beech, oak, and birch. In some areas, it is bioluminescent, and the fruit bodies of these strains will glow in the dark—an effect known as foxfire—when fresh or sometimes when revived in water after drying.
