There are so many field guides on fungi
identification. How about a new approach?

Make mushroom identification faster and simpler
with this collection which clearly and simply
illustrates the differences between similar species,
and helps make you a more confident forager, all in
a compact, easy to use format.

More Stock on Its Way

The truth is we have been troubling keeping the collection IN STOCK... But we are ready in time for this year's mushroom season!

The Twins is here.

Now available through AMAZON only (for the moment), The Twins. If you think you know which mushroom it might be, but there is one characteristics that is off..Which mushroom is it? That is the raison d'être of this new book.

So what's next?

We are very excited to be working on an expanded stand-alone version of our Twins Booklet plus two new collections. The Twins Booklet that is currently included within Deck I: The Edibles, has been expanded and enriched into its own stand-alone product called The Twins Book. Now available through AMAZON.

Deck 3: The Wild Ones is comprised of mushrooms known to have psycoactive properties. The drawings for this collection have been done by Eleanor Phillips. Besides being gorgeous, they convey the true characteristics of these historically important, some say dangerous and certainly illegal in many countries, wonderful fungi of North America (excluding Mexico) and Europe. Preorders are currently being accepted. Delivery will be in October (2022).

Deck 4: The Medicinals is in the planning stage and scheduled to be released late 2022.

In the past eight years he has been very active on social media, particularly Facebook, where he helps with identifications and education all over the world. Michel is also a trusted identifier for the online emergency identification service “Poisons Help; Emergency Identification For Mushrooms & Plants”, which is used by Poison Control, vets, medics, worried parents and pet owners.

They provide accurate, peer-reviewed identification and toxicological information in case of (potential) poisoning by mushrooms or plants.
