The Fungidex is an interactive database(For North America), where I will post all of my wild mushroom findings, stats, and tips. It's also a place where members can post their findings and add their own data to the collection. Through collaboration and compiling massive amounts of data, I believe that we can unlock the secrets to Mycorrhizal mushroom species; their cultivation, ecology, and potential applications in various industries(Forestry & Agriculture). The more accurate data we can collect, the more accurate & significant our correlations will be!
The Fungidex will focus on wild mushrooms with gourmet or medicinal significance. It is my hope that the Fungidex will give us a much better perspective on the fruiting conditions & climate, anomolies, and ecology of the various wild mushroom species of North America. Please contribute what you can and help spread the word to fellow mushroom enthusiasts. With your help, we can discover the kingdom Fungi, together!

Post pictures, if possible, of the top of the mushroom, the underside, and of the mushroom sliced in half. The more details, the better! Take note of what trees you found it growing near, or whether it was growing on the ground or on wood. Make sure you check out the underside of the cap and see if it has gills or pores. You can smell the mushroom and taste a tiny, pencil lead sized piece and spit out to take note of the scent and flavour. Notice what type of soil the mushroom is growing in, ie sandy or dark-rich. What types of trees are growing in the area and what is the incline? Etc etc
*Note: If you have extraordinary data, you must have picture evidence! In this field, it's "pictures or it didn't happen"
Please post the following details if you want to contribute information:
- What province/state are you in?
- What was the date the mushroom was found
- What type of tree was the mushroom growing with/or on?
- Temperature (High and Low)
