The Mushroom Table - Masthead

Wild Mushroom Gallery - Alphabetical List

Although many wild mushrooms are edible and delicious, some are poisonous or even deadly. Individual reaction to any food can vary, even to well recognised edibles. The illustrations of wild mushrooms in these galleries are not intended as a guide to edible mushrooms but rather to show the range of mushrooms found in Essex and Suffolk.
