FUNGIKINGDOM.net provides the amateur mycologist access to educational presentations on edible mushrooms and their toxic look-a-likes as well as amanita, russulas, and lactarius. Here you can also view a collection of photos of various fungi organized phylologically by order, family and genus by Dianna Smith. This website also includes a series of scholarly articles on the subject of fungi by writer/educator Bill Bakaitis. 

Finally, FUNGIKINGDOM.net is home to fungi photos of many hundreds of species collected by herself and members of the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association (COMA) from 2002 to 2012 in NY and CT.  Additional photos taken during that period can be found on www.pbase.com/comafungi.  (Dianna served as COMA club president, vice president and Membership chairperson for several years and continues to be a loyal member). FUNGIKINGDOM.net is also home to  the newly established PIONEER VALLEY MYCOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (PVMA) of western Massachusetts, where Dianna currently resides. We welcome new members to our club.
