Welcome to Fungi World
Fungi World is a photographic website showing what I hope are
good quality photographs of predominantly British fungi. (665
to date). I have also included some photographs taken in the Republic
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
PLEASE DO NOT EAT ANY OF THE FUNGI SHOWN ON THIS WEBSITE.
