About mushrooms-reference site!
I've tried to gather all kind of useful information about mushrooms. So you can not only learn by browsing this site, but you can also find other, more in-depth information! Besides constant improvements, you can also find information about certain mushrooms that can cause diseases.
The site has been extended by an Online Reference.
You can easily access it from the menu bar. The fungi are divided in several groups in order to make search easier. You can search for plate, pipe and other types of fungi, but you can as well use the special viewfinder and get results in the fungi list or fungi description.
WARNING! The online Mushroom Reference you can find on this site should not be used as a substitute for a specialist's opinion. The purpose of this site is to provide you with information and knowledge, and help you through your journey in the world of mushrooms.
What you need to know in any case are the circumstances of mushroom picking,
which you probably will no longer remember after a while at home. Therefore - if possible - it is better you just record these data. For example, in what kind of woods you found the fungus, or on what type of tree, or next to what kind of tree. It will be of great help if you know these facts. You can also find an article on the rules of mushrooms picking, that might help if you are a newbie in the world of fungi.
For your better and easier information, you can also find a dictionary in the Menu, which is worth using in order to get everything right. If you find a poisonous mushroom, of course you shouldn't eat it! And if you haven't picked it up, you shouldn't kick it because even these fungi fulfill numerous useful tasks in the environment protection.
This site presents you first of all those fungi which can be found in Hungary. Of course, more or less of these can be found elsewhere in the world, but nevertheless these are mostly native. Worldwide there are other kinds of fungi also, but these are not included in the online reference. Except for some famous, or worldwide known varieties, such as the Chinese fungus Shii-take. When using the online reference, the nutritional value can also be set, thus refining the search results. It can be useful when one already knows several mushroom varieties and use it as an extra search feature. When the mushroom has not been determined yet, it is obvious that this search criterion is totally unnecessary.
