How to photograph terrestrial mushrooms to get an ID

Denis Benjamin, Mycologist at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, recently shared a document created by Billy Stone (also of BRIT) that outlines the photos needed to get a proper ID of terrestrial (ground growing) mushrooms. I thought it was very helpful information and worth sharing on iNaturalist!

Excellent! Denis Benjamin spoke at our chapter last year, and when he showed examples of “bad” mushroom photos, the kind that can't possibly be identified, they looked like a lot of mine!

YES. Thank you for this journal post! I'm going to link it to lots of mushroom observations that don't yet have the right angles. :)
