Working on gaining an understanding of all mushrooms in and around my neighborhood in Seattle and love taking photos of what I am finding.

Remember that photos of the cap surface, gills, and stipe are very necessary for proper fungal ID. Substrate is vital as well most of the time.
Notes on nearby tree species will help greatly as well.
I hope you enjoy this amazing website as much as I (we) do! You should consider joining the Puget Sound Mycological Society, our free and open to the public monthly meeting is this Tuesday, the 8th. Dr. Denis Benjamin will be speaking on “medicinal mushrooms: Facts, Fiction, and Faith”
I put off joining for years and now have learned 100x more in the last year since I joined. They have opportunities to take advanced ID class with mycological professors and photo classes with pro mushroom photographers. Basic ID and Intermediate as well. Weekly ID clinics during Spring and Fall.
Hope to meet you there sometime!
