I originally created this photo guide way back in 2003 for my own personal use. It wasn't long, however, before I was persuaded to have this printed and made available for others. Unfortunately, time had caught up with this and any other guide, with DNA sequencing increasingly used to identify fungi. Names are changing at such a rate that it's become impossible to keep a printed guide up to date.
Version: 7.00, March 2022
Now available is a much expanded and optimised Photo Guide for use on a smart device or computer in the form of five small PDF books. Each species is contained on a single page with one to five images depending on availability. Each species is linked to our national fungi herbarium records, where additional photos and descriptions can be found. The photo guide has also been reviewed by the mycologist at Landcare Research to ensure the accuracy of the identifications.
