Field guides to western mushrooms?
    #3387195 - 11/20/04 02:32 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone have a suggestion for a field guide to western mushrooms (western US, that is)? I mostly use the audubon society field guide to north american mushrooms, but it's not the best for my area, was wondering if anyone had one which dealt more specifically with western species and the rocky mtns region, southwest, etc. Have been hearing good things about some of Arora's stuff...

Alexander H. Smith actually wrote such a field guide witht he exact name you suggested.

Has one picture of P. pelliculosa. John Allen's magic mushrooms fo the PNW for Those ones. David Arora's All that the rain promises and more for edibles and poisonous. OR the two expenzive volumes by Dr. Joseph Amiratti at the U of Washington.
'
Here are the refs for those two m books. WIth a great section of Psilocybian mushroom species including some gyms and photos

Ammirati, Joseph F., James A. Traquair and Paul A. Horgen. 1986. Poisonous Mushrooms of Canada, Including Other Inedible Fungi. Fitzhenry and Whiteside Ltd. (In cooperation with Agriculture Canada). 398p.

This one covers some of the PNW.

Ammirati, Joseph F., James A. Traquair and Paul A. Horgen. 1985. Hallucinogens. Poisonous Mushrooms of the Northern United States and Canada. Minister of Supply and Services Canada. Catalogue #A54-3/30E. University of Minnesota Press. Minneapolis. see Chap. 12:185-220. Also see 1989 edition.
A good reference and identification guide for edible, poisonous and entheogenic mushrooms in the Pacific Northwestern United States. Included are numerous photographs of species common to this region.

And of course the Audobon guide.

Mushroom dymistified is cool but is very big and hard to also carry around like the above Amiratti books. Of course there is Gary mesers hallucinogenic and posionous Mushroom handbook avail;able from Ronin or through barnes and Nobles, B. Dalton, Borders, etc.
