Marasmiellus albatus

Marasmiellus albatus is the prototype of Wisp Lights. There is just one Light.

Marasmiellus is a genus of fungi in the family Marasmiaceae. The widespread genus, circumscribed by American mycologist William Murrill in 1915, contains about 250 species. The name comes from the Greek marasmus meaning wasting.

The Marasmiellus albatus Light has four small white mushrooms with a slight greenish tint. All mushrooms have an embedded light and are placed on a tree root with brown and green dried moss. They emit a soft white light. This Wisp Light is currently in use as a night light for my kids.
