  • Mushroom Observer


  • Mushroom Observer is a collaborative

    mycology website started by Nathan Wilson in 2006. [2] Its purpose is to "record observations about

    mushrooms, help people identify mushrooms they aren’t familiar with, and expand the community around the scientific exploration of mushrooms". [3]

    The community of about 10,000 registered users collaborates on identifying the submitted mushroom images, assigning their scientific names by means of a weighted voting process.

    All photographs are subject to a

    Creative Commons license that allows their reuse by others without the need for remuneration or special permission, subject to the terms of the license. [3] The software is open source and hosted on GitHub .[3]

    Growth

    As of 2018, the website contains about 311,000 user-submitted mushroom observations illustrated by 945,000 photographs. [4] In 2010, the website contained about 53,000 user-submitted mushroom observations illustrated by 101,000 photographs; up from 7,250 observations and 12,800 photographs in 2008. [2] In November 2018 Mushroom observer offers approx. 945,000 photos and 311,000 observations or 15,000 species of fungi. [5]
