Letting the Genus Out of the Bottle. Commonalities among fungi species within a genus

Presenter: Lynn Ovenden

Our goal during this online session is to learn the ‘look’ of some genera for which we find several species in eastern Ontario. When you’re trying to identify an unknown mushroom, a good idea of the genus is a big help in narrowing down your search. Some of the genera we’ll look at include: Cortinarius, Pholiota, Amanita, Hygrocybe, Clitocybe, Lactarius, Russula, Tricholoma, Entoloma, Boletus, Suillus.
