This pocket-sized guide covers over 400 of the commonest species of mushroom and toadstool found in Britain and Europe. Each species is illustrated with a photograph and described in detail in the text, which includes information on colour, shape, smell, taste, time of year the mushroom is seen, and similar species. The guide is not arranged in complicated taxonomic order, but by shape for easy identification. This means that even the absolute beginner can identify mushrooms using this guide. Other features include additional helpful mushroom information at the back and a durable plastic cover.
