Mushroom Id North America - Fungi Identification Guide to Toadstools and Mushrooms
By Mullen & Pohland GbR
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
A stunning guide to fungi of North America.
Mushroom Id will help you quickly and easily identify species of the USA and Canada.
Mushroom Id is great fun to use. Identification can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Mushroom Id has been created by professional published ecologists, and uses images selected with the specific aim of aiding identification. Anatomical, ecological and taxonomic information is also included.
Mushroom Id can be used to keep a log of your fungi sightings making it easy to build a record of all the species you've seen.
SUNBIRD field guides are the only products on the market that use the KUSAM species identification methodology. This state of the art method is a modern taxonomic keying system designed specifically for use on mobile devices.
The app does not need an internet connection, all content is downloaded when the app is purchased. We will be adding new species regularly. Don't forget to keep your app up to date.
We use the term 'Mushroom' to mean any type of fungi. Traditionally the term has been used only for Field Mushrooms by some, gilled fungi by others. There is no scientific limitation on the term and we have used it in this app for all types of fungi.
The app is intended for the general interest user with a love of the natural world. The app is not intended for use when foraging for wild foods and we strongly recommend you do not handle or eat wild mushrooms, many are extremely poisonous and easily misidentified.

Works beautifully on all your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices
I love this app! It's great for identifying mushrooms while I am in the woods. I love the quiz part of the app, but it sometimes says my answer is wrong when I know it is correct. I have even stopped the quiz and used the app to look up the answer I gave(that it marked as wrong), to see the exact same picture appear as was in the quiz. That is the only problem o have with it as of yet, though.
Very helpful. Please cross reference with other sources to ensure safety or take a course. Good guide.
