This talk has been presented at a club meeting and the 2019 mushroom education class by Richard Jacob. The plan was to make it into a page on the website but that hasn’t happened yet. Until it does here is the talk. There are speakers notes for some of the slides with information on how to find the different species. Click on the cog to open the notes. Please note that the talk shows pictures of various mushrooms but does not go into full details of how to identify most of them. You will still need to use your guide books and other resources in order to learn the distinguishing features for each mushroom. It is also important to be happy with the identity of the mushroom and take responsibility for any decision to eat them. Remember if in doubt throw it out.

I became more interested in mushrooms when I found morels growing in the backyard of my new house. After joining the club I have been sucked into the world of mycology. Since then I have combined my passions of science and mycology and started a DNA barcoding initiative.
