You can for PLEUROTUS OLEARIUS (Seta del Olivo) ... also named as OMPHALOTUS OLEARIUS
 but I´m not sure.

Be always very careful with mushrooms... they are not a joke.

Greetings Maria and Jesús,
Could be jack o'lantern mushroom Omphalotus olearius - a poisonous (but not lethal) bioluminescent 'shroom (glows at night - but only the gills, not the whole 'shroom).
Though the fact that it's growing on an olivo suggests it's what Jesús says.
