  1. Omphalotus

    Omphalotus is a genus of basidiomycete mushroom formally described by Victor Fayod in 1889. Members have the traditional cap and stem toadstool form. They are saprobic, and grow in clumps on trees. The best known and type species is the jack-o'-lantern mushroom. Species of Omphalotus, which are poisonous, have been mistaken for chanterelles. Some Omphalotus species have bioluminescent properties. All are presumed poisonous, causing gastrointestinal symptoms.
