Literature and resources for general fungi

Post by adampembs » Tue Jun 09, 2015 9:39 am

  • Technical literature
    There are too many more to be listed here, but here are some of the best known ones. Most available from Summerfield Books or the NHBS.
  • Funga Nordica - out of print, a new edition is due soon. This is "the bible" of identification for cap and stem fungi (Basidiomycetes only) - it has no photos, only drawings of microscopic details, but it has excellent keys to 3,500 species. (UPDATE: This is due in 2017 according to the publishers...not so soon, as of writing http://nordsvamp.org/ )
  • Fungi of Switzerland - a beautiful set of (very expensive) books, and the most comprehensive illustrated set of books on fungi
  • Kibby guides - a useful set of small books on particular genera. Currently guides on these genera: Russula, Amanita, Agaricus, Tricholoma, "Boletes" and "British Milkcaps."

EDIT : added some suggestions for sites on fungal groups

Here are some more online resources for specific Genera. All with images and keys, they often cover European as well as UK species:

Inocybe - http://www.inocybe.org/
Leccinum - http://www.entoloma.nl/html/leccinum_eng.html
Mycena - http://home.online.no/~araronse/Mycenakey/index.htm
Psathyrella - http://www.vielepilze.de/
Coprinus s.l. - http://www.grzyby.pl/coprinus-site-Kees ... prinus.htm

Hi all,

I stumbled upon this webpage earlier today, and suspect it might prove to be very useful, as many of the included species are also found in Britain: -

It links to every issue of Czech Mycology journal from Volume 1 (1947), to Volume 67 (Present day), in downloadable PDF format.
NB: Volumes 1-47 were in Czech language, but all volumes since are in English.

http://www.czechmycology.org/czech-myco ... nt.php#v02

A comprehensive "cumulative" index, (consisting of some 282 pages!), to all fungal genera and species included in Volumes 1–64, can be found near the top of the page, but I've linked to it below.

http://www.czechmycology.org/_cm/CM62201.pdf

Happy reading folks. :D

Regards,
Mike.

This is a great site with lots of info on morphology and taxonomy. It's part of the book "The Fifth Kingdom" which I would recommend to anyone wanting to explore things in a little more depth.

These are extremely valuable links, with an understandable North American slant, but very useful nonetheless:
http://www.mykoweb.com/systematics/lite ... tml#apm1_1
especially the Other Authors and Corticiaceae of Northern Europe links
also:
http://www.mykoweb.com/systematics/journals/
much easier to deal with than the page-by-page Cyberliber version (though respect to Dave Minter for that brilliant site, which of course contains many other journals).

Hi Chris - It can be found, (amongst others), and downloaded as PDF from this BMS website page: -
http://www.britmycolsoc.org.uk/library/ ... phpcid951/

The Typhula key is found within BMS KEYS PART 6.

Regards,
Mike.

Many thanks, Mike.

I was looking in the wrong part of the website. :(

This Serbian site by Dragiša Savić - a national park biologist it seems - has a some fantastic images of all sorts, besides many fungi, and looks to be pretty accurate.
