You start the key with a single table in Key #1

Click to go to Key #1


This starting table gives you the choice between Basidomycetes and Fruiting Bodies.  From there your choices, based on your observations of the mushroom in question, will take you through the key leading you to the name of the mushroom.

If you run across words you are not familiar with, the glossary is just a click away on the left-hand menu.  Click your Back button to return to where you were in the key.
