Hi, could anyone recommended a good comprehensive book on Mushrooms/Fungi for UK/Europe. I already have a few but often cant find what I've found.
Thanks Jay.

Just bear in mind that generalist books will only take you so far, and there are far more species than will feature in even the best ones . . . .

And specialist books will require microscope work. It's unavoidable, unfortunately; the analogy is more with insects than with, say, birds or vascular plants.
