About the Images
The images are put on a page with: name of the mushroom, name of the photographer/illustrator (if possible) and a link to the origin-URL. I haven't grabbed the images - they are all uploaded from their original URL - so you'll have images from very different parts of the world (- with very different degree of overload on the net ).
About Identification and the use of Species Names
For the time being, I haven't got time to evaluate and check all the images. So I can't guarantee for the photographic quality or the proper identification. And due to the many different sources of these images, from scientific web-reports to amateur mushroom hunters - I neither can't guarantee the use of the correct species-names. (btw If anyone know of an official and up to date online fungi taxonomy, please let me know!)
The copyrights belongs to the photographers. I have tried to get in touch with all to ask for permission to link their images here. And I've got a lot of positive response. For some of the links though I haven't been able to get any name or e-mail address (please let me hear from you if you're the one) and for some others I haven't received any response yet. I think this link-page is for the benefit of all. If you disagree, let me hear.
I'm a teacher and a multimedia and web-designer. My interest for mushrooms started back in 1983. Although I'm a board member of the local Mycological Society in Eastern Jutland and have a diploma from the Danish Mycological Society, I don't consider myself a mycological expert - just a gifted amateur.
Beside this homepage I'm also maintaining my own homepage describing the nature and the mushrooms in Eastern Jutland at http://www.pip.dknet.dk/~pip1833/svampe.html. It's all written in danish, so there might not be anything for those of you who doesn't speak the language, sorry. But if you're interested in knowing what kind of mushroom to find in Eastern Jutland (mainly in the coastal beech forest "Marselisborg skovene" near Aarhus) right now you can have a look at my latest species-lists by clicking here.
