What to do if you need an "expert" to help with identification.
Before you eat any mushroom, be 100% sure of its identification. Should 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. Choose from one of the following experts.
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.
