Mushrooms of Appalachia

If you see a mushroom in the Appalachian Region of the United States, take a picture of it and include critical data such as habitat description and applicable notes on nearby forest types/tree species, odor, size of cap, length of stipe, and spore print color. Spore prints are easy to obtain by placing the cap on a sheet of paper for several hours and then noting the color of spores left on the paper for identification purposes. Sign in to join mission
