(Mushrooms, bracket- and club-fungi, puffballs, moulds & other entities)

Important note: You should never eat any fungi or mushrooms without getting expert identification. Many mushrooms are lethally poisonous. Do not rely on this site for identification - I am not an expert.

Click a thumbnail to view full size image(s) of that species. A bullet • indicates new images or new pages.

Fungi (larger): usually 10–30mm or more, with gills, pores or spines, and with either stem, cap or both. These include earth- and puffballs (± globose — with or without stem); fan and bracket fungi (often resembling deformed or reduced 'typical caps'); club fungi (spindle- or finger-like or ± so); coral fungi.

Other Fungi: usually very small or tiny, <10–15mm; may lack gills or pores; may lack stem &/or cap; may lack any definite form — being lumpy, gelatinous, gooey, granular, or powdery.
