Thanks for putting this up Adam. - I hope people might find it useful.

PS: I don't claim any copyright for what's contained in the file.
I collated the information from various sources freely available via the internet.
I'm quite happy for anyone and everyone to make use of the file if they find it helpful.

Regards,
Mike.

Hi. The glossary link no longer works. Can someone post a working link?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I no longer have the original info file, but I've contacted Adam to see whether he can link to a currently available PDF version in a similar manner to that in which the "Common Names" info is made available.

Regards,
Mike.

Fixed. These problems are down to thew forum software not liking file sharing without using add-ons so I have just put it in a Google Drive file share.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :D

Awesome. Thank you for fixing this. I'd like to mention something else. I have been working for over three years to develop a non-profit glossary for Mushroom Observer. It's available here, but it's not even close to being finished: https://mushroomobserver.org/glossary_terms

This is an advanced mycology glossary that needs to be further developed.

I was wondering if your community could *peer review* this glossary, and add comments in a post on this site. If you're open to the idea, please let me know, and I'll create a post somewhere.

Go ahead. I really can't see anyone objecting to that. :)
