Our Experts

Before you eat any mushroom, be 100% sure of its identification. If you need assistance, here is a list of some knowledgeable MOMS members who have offered to help identify fungi. You may call or email any of them with your questions or photos. They may even agree to meet you somewhere to take a look at your specimen.

If you have any non-urgent questions, you may use our contact us page to send us your question along with a photo (if possible) via email. However, for any questions for which you need immediate answers, you may contact any of our experts below by phone.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Both the member assisting in the identification of the mushroom, and the Missouri Mycological Society are not responsible for any mushroom misidentified. Final determination of a mushroom's identification is always the responsibility of the person submitting the request.
