Welcome to Fungi World
Fungi World is a photographic website showing what I hope are
good quality photographs of predominantly British fungi. (780
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.
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 always possible
to accurately identify fungi from photographs alone.
Visitors to this website should therefore view it as a Guide rather than
I have written a book entitled Field Guide to the Mushrooms of Britain
and Europe. Published by New Holland. October 2016. This is written specifically
for the beginner to the subject of mushrooms and for those with a little more knowledge. If you wish to take a look at it or purchase it please follow the link
