I recently moved to Northern AL. I have been finding loads and loads of mushrooms, but I am only certain of a couple of edible varieties. I have the Smithsonian's field guide, but am looking for something more regional. I have done some searching and found FG's for every other region EXCEPT mine Does anyone know of one that Google does not?

I have a National Audubon Society guidebook myself, and while it has several hundred species and nice color plates, books are a relic of the last millennium. In this modern age, the Internet is our guidebook, either you post here and some amateur mycologist will give you a quick guess, which you can follow up with a Wiki search, or you go digging through sites like Tom Volk's fungi webpage or mushroomexpert.com.

I haven't found any regional guides for the Southeast, but then again, on-line is where I do most of my mycological research.

Thanks John. The net is definitely my go-to source for pretty much everything, but I like to have hard copies of things that are useful just in case. will post some pics of what I've been finding. Just got a good amount of rain, so we should be seeing some nice fungi soon

So far, I find it easier to find a mushroom in a guide book, because one can flip through and compare with the photos. On an Internet site it would need a thumbnail overview like this one for butterflies and moths: http://www.lepiforum.de/lepiwiki.pl?Fotouebersicht_Schmetterlingsfamilien_8
I haven't found such a site for mushrooms yet. But the species descriptions on mushroomexpert.com are great, very detailed and with lots of photos.

 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
