Mycology Links

There are many wonderful mushroom sites on the internet. Some of them just about have a link to all others. But, it is hard to keep up with all the changes. We’ll change this page to the other mushroom links as often as possible.

The site has a database of the most common mushrooms, an identification guide and international forums for discussing fungi.
