Identify and learn about the fungi of Britain. Over 400 of the commonest species are described and illustrated.
Fungi are listed alphabetically and by Group. Each fungus is presented with a description, mycological data, key identification points, cross-references to similar species, and one or more images showing various aspects of the species. The app can be configured to prefer either common or scientific names.
There is a Key with drop-down lists of characteristics to help you to identify fungi in the field, and you can test and improve your knowledge with the interactive quiz!
NatureBritain pledges a proportion of app revenues to supporting woodland conservation, education and research projects in the UK.
***WARNING*** Many British fungi are poisonous, some terminally so. Information on edibility is provided for interest only. If you intend eating any wild fungi you should seek the help of an expert.
