Species - Fungi & Lichens

Note: This isn't really meant as an ID guide. It's really more meant as an inspirational guide to what sorts of things can be found in metro Atlanta. I'm a beginner to fungi ID. For the most part, these were identified by the fine folks at Mushroom Observer. Thanks to them for all the ID help. You should always do your own research before consuming any mushrooms.

All photos were taken in metro Atlanta.
