About this book

In this dictionary as many common names as possible in Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Pakistani, Philipino, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish are given alongside the botanical (scientific) names of mushrooms.

A total of 628 edible species (distributed among various genera of fungi) whose gastronomic value ranges from excellent to poor (in the broadest sense) are covered. The edible species whose common names are not known or not available at present, have been omitted. Among the species included, some are controversial with regard to their edibility. In such cases a note of caution (or precautionary measures to be taken before eating) has been appended to the remarks.
