A Field Guide to Tasmanian Fungi now available in the Fungimap Bookshop


If you have seen interesting fungi in your neighborhood or backyard, submit the details and/or a photograph of the fungus here.

You will be contributing to the National Australian Fungimap Database - an important and unique collection of information about Australia's fungi - and facilitating research by professionals and citizen scientists alike.

And, because so little is known about Australian fungi you could even be helping to document and describe a species that is new to science!
