Fungi make wonderful subjects for photography but attempting to identify just from photographs is never easy, always risky, and often impossible. Our members find that photographing fungi during forays with others around allows the subject to be identified with care, also specimens of the collection in question can then be dried and kept for future reference and study.
Any member can have their own section of photographs below. If you'd like to contribute to the site and have images for consideration, either common or rare, please email them to Penny*. One can never have too many photographs of even common fungi, and it is always useful to have views of specimens at different stages of development - the variation which can occur is often misleading and is also not always illustrated in available reference books.
