I have several trees in my yard, a boxelder, an elm, a mountain ash and a pine tree. There are glowing green spots. I found some information about this but I now see glowing red spots which I haven’t been able to find much info about. They are much brighter at night when the preceding day was very sunny. I don’t have a camera that has been able to take a picture at night. Can you help my figure out this weird red foxfire? It’s pretty amazing. Thanks!
Thank you for your question. Sorry for the day in getting you an answer. The most common explanation for this luminesence is fungi, explained here: https://blog.mycology.cornell.edu/2010/04/12/this-bark-glows-in-the-dark-bioluminescence-in-mushrooms/ But, as the following article explains, bioluminescence is far more widespread: https://uanews.arizona.edu/story/glow-in-the-dark-millipede-says-stay-away Without clear, closeup photos, it is impossible to ID with any certainty. You’ll need to be a sleuth! Good luck!
