I'm a quiet field mycologist interested in

  • visual ID, especially of North American agarics
  • relationships among mushroom forms (the simple shape-based categories we sort them into),
  • phylogeny/evolution, taxonomy, scientific nomenclature, and common names.

I've been paying attention to mushrooms since 2010.

Things I'm doing:

  • I keep track of the genus-level names of agarics and Agaricales, with up-to-date information on their taxonomic placements, nomenclatural status, sequencing status, and so on at www.agaric.us. My thoughts and suggestions for mushroom common names are there too.
  • A program I wrote for copying observations from Mushroom Observer to iNaturalist is available. Contact me here or anywhere if you need help using it.
  • I'm working on another book! It's a guide to mushrooms of Southern California.

Things I've finished doing:
