I'm interested in the (visual) ID, phylogeny, and nomenclature (scientific and otherwise) of mushrooms, mostly of agarics (gilled mushrooms).

All of my mushroom observations are at www.mushroomobserver.org. I keep track of the genus-level names of agarics and Agaricales (taxonomic, nomenclatural, sequencing status, etc.) at www.agaric.us. Last year I wrote the species text for the forthcoming Audubon guide to mushrooms of North America. This year I'm a field mycologist collecting for Brandon Matheny's lab at U of Tennessee, with a focus on Inocybaceae.
