COLORADO MUSHROOM SPECIES

[Home] | [Edible] | [Hunts] | [Links] | [Message Board] | [Poisonous] | [Species List]
Mushroom Identification is easy for some of the more common mushroom species while mushroom identification can be very difficult for others. This page shows the entire database of mushrooms for Colorado Mushrooms. We will continue to build this database of mushrooms to help in the more common mushroom identification. If you are new to mycology we suggest you learn some of the easily identified edible mushrooms first such as: Boletus Edulis, Golden Chantrelle, and the Shaggy Mane. These are some of the more commonly collected and identified mushrooms for the beginner.

New Mushrooms will be added each season as they are identified, documented and have a their pictures taken. Our hope is to continually add to this resource for collectors around Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.
