One in a series of guides, each arranged so that all the similar-looking species are illustrated together, with tips on how to tell them apart. Added information on behaviour or habitat reinforce the identification points to ensure the user is on the right track to full identification. This book describes all the edible species of mushrooms and the species they may be confused with. The danger that the mushroom might actually be false chanterelle rather than a true chanterelle is covered in full, with tips on how to tell the two species apart.
