    Sweet mushroom identification guide.
    What makes this guide better than most, is the way it classifies mushrooms. In the front and back covers, you narrow down your mushroom’s features (Does it have gills, does it have a stem, does it look like a sponge, etc…) This allows you to flip to a section of similar mushrooms. From there, your mushroom is likely only a few pages away.

    There are lots of color photos, and descriptions of edibility and habitat too.

    This is the best mushroom field guide I’ve come across for the Pacific Northwest.
