Mycothèque virtuelle Virtual mycotheque
Fondation Miron Royer

Welcome to the virtual mycothèque of the Miron-Royer Foundation Inc.!

Our goal is to illustrate the diversity of shapes, colors, habitats and geographic distribution of fungi in Quebec and Eastern Canada.

The photos are taken by amateur mycologists who agree to illustrate in detail the fungi in their region. Often, when taking photos, the person does not necessarily know the name of the fungus, the objective being to collect in photos all the information that will allow its identification later by means of keys and specialized books or with the collaboration of specialists in the field. A great way to learn and develop your knowledge of mycology.

Viewing of these photos is available free of charge to anyone who wishes to view them while respecting the copyrights attached to them.

All collaborations are welcome and enjoy your visit to the mycothèque.

Fernand Miron, biologist, responsible for the project.
