Did you know?
    #25876613 - 03/15/19 08:35 PM (4 days, 9 hours ago)

Just found an app yesterday that can "identify" plants and mushrooms. Has anyone used it successfully with active mushrooms? I tried to scan a p.sub from a photo on a phone and it gave me 3 options as to what it was. Only one of those options were psilocybe but not a sub. You can also suggest to the app what it is so could be a great app if experienced people uploaded active and non active finds. Any input on this subject?

I doubt it works all that well for fungi.... too many things cannot be identified to the species level through macro observations only and way fewer with a single view (or does it ask to see cap, stipe, gills?)

It can probably get a few really unique things right, but I wouldn't trust it at all, especially if it's anything (plant or fungi) that you intend to ingest.

:whathesaid: I think I've only tried using an app once, it was a long time ago, and I found it to be almost useless. I've heard others say sometimes they're spot on, but more often they're way off the mark. Of course, it depends to a large degree on what information you put in - if your observations aren't entirely correct, you're probably not gonna get an accurate identification; crap in = crap out. I definitely wouldn't trust them, it's still hard to beat a keen eye and experience. I don't think an app will ever (at least in our lifetime) be better than a good human identifier.

Good points, people will upload 2 year old dried cubes and be stupid with it. I actually scanned three chilli plants aswell and all of them came up as chilli but non specific

The best one I've came across so far is inaturalist, but it has a long way to go to be trustworthy. Lots of knowledgeable folks there.


--------------------
DISCLAIMER: I study the macro/micro taxonomy of mushrooms, but I can make mistakes, I'm human, not to mention identification from pictures is difficult. If you want to eat it, varify all identifications of non actives before doing so, it's up to you to be sure we are right.
