Welcome to our Mushroom Guide A-Z. Over the past few years we have been photographing the species we have encountered on white backgrounds to help compare and contrast species as well as get a closer look at each one. The aim is to publish on here the majority of species one would encounter in a 'normal' fungi foraying year. As you can appreciate it takes time to find, photograph, edit and write about each species; we currently have a backlog of 300 species, but we will aim to add new species frequently. For identification purposes please bear in mind not all species are presented here and use multplie reliable references to confirm your findings.
