In 2005 we published the ground-breaking guide to Fungimap’s 100 target specie: Fungi Down Under (reprinted in 2009) which has sold several thousand copies. It was the first fungal field guide globally to include maps of all species, and has been very successful in encouraging mapping of Australian fungi. Fungi Down Under was written and compiled entirely by citizen scientists who volunteered their time and expertise. The printing was largely funded by people who sponsored one or more species.

[Our Fungi Down Under pages in the top menu bar list these 100 species and you can click on the names to open up descriptions and photos.]

Fungi Down Under 2 will add a further 100 species to our mapping target. Writing for this new edition is underway and we aim to publish in 2019.

By sponsoring one or more of the species in this new edition, you can help with Fungimap projects such as the cost of printing Fungi Down Under 2.
