Identification‎ > ‎

Photo submission

It can be difficult, and sometimes impossible, to identify a fungus from a photograph, but it can still be fun and interesting to share photos of unknown specimens so that others can suggest possibilities. Follow the steps below. See also 'Taking photos for identification' in the 'Photographing fungi' section of the site.

IMPORTANT: Treat all photo identifications as provisional and never eat a fungus unless backed up by other methods of identification.

If you want to share your photos with others for help with identification, Scottish Fungi recommends signing up to iSpot
