Mushroom Id North America App Description

A stunning guide to fungi of North America. Mushroom Id will help you quickly and easily identify species of the USA and Canada. Mushroom Id is great fun to use! Identification can be enjoyed by the whole family. Mushroom Id has been created by professional published ecologists, and uses images selected with the specific aim of aiding identification. Anatomical, ecological and taxonomic information is also included. Mushroom Id can be used to keep a log of your fungi sightings making it easy to build a record of all the species you've seen. SUNBIRD field guides are the only products on the market that use the KUSAM species identification methodology. This state of the art method is a modern taxonomic keying system designed specifically for use on mobile devices. The app does not need an internet connection, all content is downloaded when the app is purchased. We will be adding new species regularly. Don't forget to keep your app up to date. 164 species are covered. The app is intended for the general interest user with a love of the natural world. The app is not intended for use when foraging for wild foods and we strongly recommend you do not handle or eat wild mushrooms, many are extremely poisonous and easily misidentified.

App Reviews

  • Crappy app

    By jonathan1018.
    Google would work better.
  • Good app

    By mcfulle
    It’s quite useful while out walking around, but I find several types aren’t in the database. I’m sure it will continue to improve over time. I use it all the time!
  • Very helpful

    By BeanReader
    A very good reference for someone like me who knows nothing about fungi.
  • A little overpriced for the number of species

    By Aaaallllyyyyy
    5 dollars seems like a bit much when many of the categories only have one species. Very limited use.
  • Great app (needs more)

    By ognog
    The app is a great idea just need more species listed and their ranges. Also if you could group them but Order, Family or Genus that would be much more helpful in ID’ing
  • Missing a lot...

    By foundup
    There’s a lot I don’t like... 1. Doesn’t link to Wikipedia 2. Doesn’t have all the names... like Ringless Honey Mushrooms 3. Lacks filers... I wasn’t to see just the edible ones.. or just ones in FL etc... 4. Search function is broken and lists Mushrooms that are out of season in search criteria and the wrong color. 5. Lacks camera ID with simple image and color recognition software This could be an amazing app - very disappointing
  • Database needs to be expanded and search feature should be improved.

    By Adrienneinaustin
    Stunning pics with a limited database. The search feature is pretty poor. The results produced did not match any of the characteristics I entered. The app is ok as it is now but has the potential to be much better. I hope they keep making improvements.
  • terrible! no instant photo id like other apps

    By Terrible App! Do not buy!!
    TERRIBLE! Don’t waste your money! Other apps let u snap a photo of mushrooms you find this one does not! Terrible mushroom ID! When i put in precise mushroom descriptions, its comes up with mushrooms that are NOTHING like i’m describing! If you try to userhis to ID mushrooms, it couldcost you your life!!!
  • Well made

    By Trend hater
    Solid, nice pictures, nothing is edible without expert advice and either I’m the world’s leading discoverer of uncategorized fungi or their database for North America is rather incomplete. How about an upload for identification option?
  • Great app needs more content

    By notds
    If only there were more mushrooms and descriptions in this app. Good idea just need to build it out more. Good work. I want something as visual as this just more complete.
