I finally found the time to update my website with many new photos from the past two seasons including those from the central North Island. I also fixed a few broken links and probably add a few new ones. You are welcome to email me if you find any.

Introduction
line

This section of my website is the largest, which contains general information about fungi, some fun things to do with them and a large collection of photographs that I have taken over many years. Many are from the Auckland region of New Zealand although the site is not limited to this region. This site was not intended as an identification guide though it's gets used for this. Rather, it's purpose is to show you the beauty and diversity of New Zealand's fungi.

Why fungi
line

I love going out into the bush and have done so with my parents since I was a small boy. Having seen many fungi during these trips I was fascinated by their colour and forms, so when I was in my late teens I developed an interest in photography. I thought these fungi will make an interesting challenge, particularly as they tend to grow in dark, damp places and best of all they don't move! I did not know then that 45 years later I would still be photographing them.
