This second edition provides photographs and details for over 650 species found in Tasmania. It contains 50 additional species not covered in the first edition. Although this guide is Tasmanian based, it is relevant for the whole of southern Australia, including the wetter regions of South Australia and Western Australia. Covers all groupings of fungi, not only mushrooms, but also boletes, polypores, leather fungi, cup and disc fungi, puffballs and all other artificial groups that constitute the macrofungi. Contains extensive keys to the genera of gilled fungi and a table of characteristics containing descriptions of each genus of gilled fungi.
