Additional notes. Identifications taken (with one exception) from
Mushrooms of North America by Helen M.E. Schalkwijk-Barendsen. BTW, this
is rapidly becoming my favorite field guide. The illustrations are
magnificent, and even not when the illustrated specimens were found and
where! While I'm not very positive about water-color illustrations,
Helene has done a superb job, making this book easier to follow tham most
other field guides that I have. While it may not cover everything one is
likely to find in the PNW, it certainly is a good beginning!
