Character error 

Both Agent Scully and the coroner repeatedly refer to the fungus as a plant. Fungi do not belong to the kingdom Plantae; they belong to their own, and are even considered to be more closely related to animals than to plants. While neither of them are botanists or mycologists by profession, they would have learned this fact in a basic undergraduate general biology course.

Errors in geography 

When Mulder and Scully are talking about North Carolina and the Brown Mountain Lights, in the background is displayed a oversized map of South Carolina. And Asheville, North Carolina is located in Buncombe County. There is no Boone County in North Carolina.

The caption places the duo at the Boon. County ME's Office in Asheville, NC. The door to the ME's truck also states Boone County.

Brown Mountain is in Burke County, NC. approximately 20 miles from the city of Boone (Watauga County) and approximately 65 miles from the city of Asheville (Buncombe County). As a previous poster indicated, there is no such place as Boone County.

Factual errors 

The yellow "NC Permanent -State Owned" tag on the front of the Medical Examiner's truck is incorrect. As "Boone County" owned the truck the correct tag, at the time of filming, would have been silver colored "Permanent -North Carolina".

NC is a rear display only state and does not issue tags for the front of the vehicle.
