Summary: Welcome to the Macrofungi of Lane County, Oregon project!
This project was started by bit, werdnus and B. Newhouse on 6 March 2018 to inventory and document the macrofungi of Lane County, Oregon. It is sanctioned as a part of the Cascade Mycological Society (CMS) (cascademyco.org) and is coordinated with the North American Mycoflora Project (NAMP) (mycoflora.org) efforts. Whereas the NAMP project is more dependent on vouchering and DNA sequencing, we intend to add to that the information that can be garnered from detailed notes and good photographs of a specimen if no collection is made. Where possible, we will supplement collections and observations with microscopic observation and analysis. Results of any sequencing will be stored and available on MyCoPortal (mycoportal.org). An ongoing species list with “level of confidence” identification will be available soon on the CMS MLCO web site.
“Macrofungi” is defined as any taxon in (or similar to those in) Arora, D. 1986. Mushrooms Demystified, Second Edition.
Photo documentation can be done here or on the iNat web site. The Cascade Mycological Society has further information about the Macrofungi of Lane County, Oregon on their web site (3/18: coming soon).
