Native Fungi & Mushrooms

“All things are poisons, for there is nothing without poisonous qualities. It is only the dose which makes a thing poison.” Paracelsus

Below is a list of all the  Fungi & Mushrooms (and Slime Molds) that I  have found and photographed on Distant Hill. More species are being added as they are found and identified. 
 
I have found this group of organisims to be one of the most interesting to photograph and research. It is amazing how many fungi have medicinal uses, many of which have been know for thousands of years.
