Mushroom species Print

 

On this site, we will mention some of the most important and most common mushrooms, together with the information about their edibility and medicinal properties, as well as information that can be useful for the successful identification of these species. Gradually more species will be added.

 

   

 

Before exploring some of the mushroom species which are mentioned on this site, keep in mind that one should never consume unknown species, since unexperienced mushroom hunters are often known not to be able to distinguish the small differences between certain species. However, everyone can gradually learn to distinguish even the most similar species, and thereby greatly reduce the risk of confusing edible species with the inedible ones.
