Fungi In Australia

Revision 2.2
August 28, 2019

This freely downloadable e-book (PDF format), which consists of 7 parts, is intended to serve as a resource to assist in the identification of some fungi that may be encountered in our native forests. It contains 380 species and over 2000 photographs of fungi, plus references for further study. All books have an interactive "Table of Contents" and "Index" for ease of navigation.

Part 1 "Introduction" introduces you to Fungi In Australia and also to the Kingdom Fungi.
Part 2 "Ascomycota: Pezizomycotina" contains the descriptions of ascomycetes.
Part 3 "Basidiomycota: Agaricomycotina – I" contains the Order Agaricales, which includes most of the gilled fungi.
Part 4 "Basidiomycota: Agaricomycotina – II and Pucciniomycotina" contains the rest of the Orders that make up Agaricomycotina, plus some Orders from Pucciniomycotina, which are predominantly species of non-gilled fungi.
Parts 5, 6, and 7 comprise the "Photographic Guides", which can be used in the field to assist in the identification process.

These books are best read on a tablet or iPad, but any device or computer with an up to date PDF reader will also suffice.

It is our intention to keep adding to the species list as more identifications become available.

Fungi In Australia may be freely downloaded. If you find it interesting or useful would you please make a donation of at least $10 to the FNCV.
