I have a bachelor's degree in Biology, and am in the Wisconsin Mycological Society (WMS), but have no formal specialization to claim here. If I have made an ID on your observation, it isn't an expert opinion, but I will have considered it as thoroughly as I can. If I am looking at specific sources, I will try to remember and link them in a comment.

For the most part I use the "favored taxa" section for quick links for myself, for browsing. It isn't a list of what I can best identify!

WMS projects can all be found listed here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/all-wms-projects

I encourage all WMS project members add your observations to FunDiS - Fungal Diversity Survey project if they met the project's standards needed for identification.

You can see more about those standards in a comment on this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/61117794

& here at FunDiS's iNaturalist project itself: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/fundis-fungal-diversity-survey

Eventually, WMS plans to get involved beyond observing, with sequencing & curating. If that sounds interesting to you, send me a message!

Also, don't hesitate to let me know if there's a problem with anything I am doing, to ask that I join a project, look at your observation or help look something up, or just to say hello.

Pictured is an excellent, if captive and cultivated, specimen of Felis catus, variety Remedios. As a naturalist, she specializes in pointing out indoor bugs, nature smells, and observing anything that can be seen from the windows, or while leading the way in her cat-leash-vest-thing on our walks.
