  • Welcome to Fungi World

    Fungi World is a photographic website showing what I hope are good quality photographs of predominantly British fungi. (660 to date). I have also included some photographs taken in the Republic of Ireland.

    I hope that the fungi shown on this website are appreciated for their beauty, which in turn will hopefully promote better awareness and respect for this Third Kingdom. There is currently work going on by Mycologists to try to get fungi classed as being worthy of 'Conservation Status'.

    In order to identify fungi accurately the habitat, dimensions (including cap and stem), colours of cap and stem, gills (colour of and structure), odour of the fungi, season, and possible chemical and microscopic tests should be carried out. It is not possible to accurately identify fungi from photographs alone.

    I must therefore stress that I am a photographer and not a Mycologist and visitors to this site must understand that there may be errors in identification and that this site should not be viewed as an encyclopedia!
