How to use the Keys

Easy Key

We have picked out some of the salient features of the fungus specimens you may be trying to identify and built up a series of check-boxes that you can click to bring up a selection of mushrooms that have those features. It is not a dichotomous key, rather a very simplified multi-entry key. The best way to use it is to enter the characters you are sure about, such as unusual smell, stem absent, small size, grows on wood orange colour. Those answers that you find difficult are best left out, it is not necessary to click in every section.

When you have put in all the element you are sure about have a look at the selection you have made in many cases the group you will need to examine via the full text may be immediately obvious.

To avoid a 50 page key we have reduced the number of possibilities to a very restricted series of questions, (sometimes we may be at fault for over restricting the number of choices), thus the word "brown" in the mushroom colour section covers all browns from yellowish, reddish to olivaceous, and all the tones from fairly light to very dark.

Visual Key

This is another way into the vast numbers of mushroom that are contained in the site.

It is especially designed for the beginner. Spend a little time looking over the pictures so when you make a collection you will have an idea of which of the main genera you might have collected and can first go to that genus or group. For the more knowledgeable it is an easy way to bring up all the members of a group, some of the groups are composites like Boletus and allies, some are simple like Russula.

How to purchase images from the site.

The site contains over 3000 images of mushrooms from North America and Europe but this represents only a fraction of the number of high quality photographs available from the work of Roger Phillips. Please visit the section Buy photos for full information on purchasing the right to use these images.
