Update: July 2023
This guide now includes book six which covers the myxomycetes
I originally created this photo guide way back in 2003 for my own personal use. It wasn't long, however, before I was persuaded to have this printed and made available for others. Unfortunately, time has caught up with this and every other fungi book, with DNA sequencing increasingly used to identify fungi. Names are changing at such an alarming rate that it's become impossible to keep a printed guide up-to-date.
Version: 7.10, July 2023
Now available is a much expanded and optimised photo guide for use on any smart device or computer in the form of six small PDF books. Each species is contained on a single page with one to five images, depending on availability. This photo guide has also been reviewed by our local mycologist at Landcare Research to ensure the accuracy of the identifications..
Obtaining a copy:
I am selling this photo guide for $40 to cover some of my costs. Book One can be downloaded for free to allow you to review it and see if it meets your needs.
To obtain the other five books, deposit $40 in my bank account, then email me at with the name used in the bank transfer. Once I see the money in my account, I will send you a link to download the remaining five books.
