It's always tricky relying on photos to identify mushrooms, but it's a good start to identify potentially harmful members of the various families. Always err on the side of caution! And, note the fact that this book is more useful for European fungi than for North American fungi. Yes, many mushrooms found in Europe will also be found in NA, but there are quite a few mushrooms in this book which are found only in Europe. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671428497, Paperback)

Simon & Schuster's Guide to Mushrooms is indispensable to anyone fascinated by mushrooms and other fungi. Lavishly illustrated, it contains detailed information about 420 types of mushrooms and other fungi found in the United States and Europe. The comprehensive introduction provides general information on the structure, reproduction, life cycles, classification, and distribution of the various species and describes the individual parts of the fungus as well. The entries describe the appearance, habitat, and geographic distribution of each species of fungi. The easy-to-use visual key provides each entry with immediately recognizable symbols that indicate spore color, ecological environment, and whether the species is edible or poisonous. A glossary and analytical index, plus an Index to Genera for locating particular subjects, help make this the most beautiful, valuable, and authoritative book in the field.
