Other Mushroom Sites
These links are a few
of the many interesting mushroom sites available. I have selected
the ones which I feel are of more general interest to our club members
rather than being primarily oriented to an individual club or group.
The descriptions are my impression of the site and may not reflect the
intention of the web master. I will be glad to make corrections if
anyone disapproves, and other sites will undoubtedly be added in the future.
Trichomycetes: Fungal Associates of Anthropods
Professor Robert Lichtwardt, longtime KVMS
member, is one of the authors of this book, which is published in its entirety
online. He has given many presentations to the club and has always
been extremely interesting. This is certainly a worthwhile site to
of the Pacific Northwest
This site provides by far the best on line
identification key I have found. While it is designed for the mushrooms
of the Pacific Northwest region, it is a great visual key to many species
This site belonging to Roger Phillips
is a source to what is probably the most extensive collection of pictures
available on the net. There are over 1500 varieties of mushrooms depicted here.
and Toadstools of the Hampshire and Surrey Borders
This site from our English friends provides
a great number of beautiful mushroom photos and, as an added bonus, has
links to other natural history sites, including butterflies and dragonflies.
Poisoning Case Registry
The North American Mycological Association
established this page to collect and disseminate data on mushroom
poisoning in North America. A report can either be sent by e-mail
or a form can be printed for mailing.
Online! Home Page
Dave Fischer's page is unique in that, in
addition to numerous links to other sites, it provides a list of names
and e-mail addresses of mushroomers who are interested in being listed
on the net.
A great variety of mushroom interests are
addressed in this site. Newsletters on line, commercial mushroom and cultivation
sites are included.
Resources on the Internet
For the serious amateur or professional mycologist,
Kathie Hodge's page is almost indispensable. It contains links to
an overwhelming number of resources relating to the study of mycology.
While MykoWeb relates primarily to the San
Francisco area, it provides such a variety of information it should be
interesting to any mushroomer.
The official site for NAMA.
American Mycological Societies
A listing of the amateur mushroom clubs in
North America. The list includes e-mail addresses and web sites when
Lockwood's "Treasures from the Kingdom of Fungi"
Some of Taylor's magnificent pictures are
displayed on this site. While just a teaser for his entire program,
it is still worth visiting.
The Puget Sound
This certainly is one of the more extensive
sites maintained by a mushroom club. The highlight may be their Spore
Prints newsletter, but the range of information invites extended browsing.
In addition to his over one thousand JPEG
"Images of Fungi," Tom has provided a variety of other interesting and
educational pages. The pictures are detailed enough to aid in identification.
Dr. Michael Keo is the owner of the Web development company Blue
Willow Pages. He collects mushrooms for the MushroomExpert.Com herbarium
in Illinois, Michigan, and Colorado. He is a member of the Mycological
Society of America. There is a wealth of mushroom information on
