MEET THE MUSHROOMS!
These pages represent a small fraction of the thousands of fungi found in Nova Scotia and in eastern North America. Not all species of even the common genera are included, nor are the identification features, large nor small. Therefore identification of your specimens will not be possible using this website alone. Field guides and expert opinion should form the basis for all identifications. This is especially important if the collector seeks edible species. We wish only to present you with a sample of the dizzying array of the fungus among us.

Remember, if in doubt of identification, do not consume.
 
Let's meet them!
