Definitely don’t trust


The “shazam” feature is experimental at best. The database is incomplete at best. It incorrectly ids some of the easiest mushrooms; chicken of the woods, beefsteaks, turkey tails. Even some popular mushrooms you can find at the farmers market like lions mane or maitake are missing from the database. It does id some correctly and gets close on others but more bad than good at least for the South East US. Im an amateur mushroom hunter, and I would recommend not eating anything identified by this app.

Psilocybin should not be categorized as poisonous


Psilocybin containing mushrooms should not be categorized as poisonous, they should be in a category of their own, perhaps not under edible, but definitely not poisonous, a separate icon other than skull and cross bones to describe inedible. Needs more work.. i will keep the app as it contains useful information non the less.

best app for mushroom lovers


I've been foraging mushrooms over 15 years, this is absolutely the best app that I recommend to my followers.
