Hi, I have a few photos of fungi that I took during the treks that I did a few weeks ago. I don't know their names, however, and I'd be glad to know them. Here's the link:

Thanks for your help! : )

Hi! Those are all so beautiful! Did you take these pictures in oregon? I'm not sure, but number 6 is some sort of polyphore mushroom.

Here is a site that shows lots of beautiful pictures of mushrooms, maybe you can find them there. Good luck!

RE: Please ID these fungi


I think your only chance for this is a book called "The Larger Fungi of Borneo" pubished by Natural History Publications (Borneo). They also do a book on the mosses and liverworts of Mount Kinabalu that might be of interest and several on higher plants. They are all extremely well produced with superb colour photos and very reasonably priced. Go to for a complete list.

(I have nothing to do with this company, by the way, other than having a selection of their books on my shelf!)

I hope this helps.

Was #2 taken at the base of a tree? Or near the tree probably along the root line?
Thanks Kelly
