Welcome to Mushrooms at Simon's Rock

An aid to the identification of the genera of agarics


This website is designed to assist the experienced
novice/mycophagist/college student, etc, in identifying Agarics
(the “mushrooms” and/or “toadstools”) exclusively.

There is no glossary or key because many other websites and books contain
them, and I saw no need to duplicate effort. The site is very user friendly,
and I am sure you will be able to navigate around quite easily.

A couple of important notes.

The spore photographs are all of the same magnification, so although
I have yet to put a micrometer scale on the photos, you can compare
sizes easily.

Any photo without a credit or copyright notice was taken by me. You are
welcome to use it, but please credit me when doing so.

No doubt, I have made errors. It is most important that this information
is accurate, so please notify me at mushrooms@simons-rock.edu if you
find errors, disagree with my analysis, or if you are familiar with any
literature of which I should be aware.
