Hey guys,

I am shopping for a general and as complete as possible mushroom identification guide (or several ones that complement each other). I already own Stamets' "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World" and Menser's "Hallucinogenic and Poisonous Mushrooms". What other books would you recommend?
Should I get myself David Largant's "How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus" series? If yes, which volume should start with? Any other suggested titles?

I live in Europe, so am mostly interested in mushrooms that grow there in the wild. German and Russian titles are fine with me.

Thanks!

I have Mushrooms Demystified (2nd edition) by David Arora. I like it just fine, but I think it might be slightly dated. For example, I know it doesn't have Psilocybe weilii in it (but I know that the Stamets book you have does have that specie). Anyway, I think it's a very good guide and really informative.

Oh, and if you end up getting that book, I'd try to avoid going somewhere like Borders or B&N to get it because if I remember correctly it costs way more at those stores than where I bought it (Amazon).

I'd *strongly* recommend Meinhard Moser's Keys to Agarics and Boleti. It's out of print, but worth searching used book stores for. It's one of the most definitive references to the fungi of Europe and keys out 3150 species.

Happy mushrooming!
