ShroomID - Identify Mushrooms!

The mushroom universe is both charming and dangerous. In any garden, small colonies of mushrooms bloom and there are numerous species that can be consumed in our forests. However, there are also many others that can be deadly and that you should stay away from.

Despite being available in English (which could also be another opportunity to develop a second language), ShroomID - Identify Mushrooms! will help identify mushroom species around the world, indicate whether or not they are poisonous, which territories they can be found and even the time of year when they develop the most.
