About this app

Looking for a mushroom hunting app?
Look no further, because you just found ShroomID.

Mushroom Characteristics


Learn to identify mushrooms by their characteristics. Filter by gill type, pore type, stem features, spore print color, and more! With ShroomID you can learn real mycology to identify mushroom features.

Photo Identification


Get AI predictions by taking a picture. Our team of machine learning scientists developed a class-leading algorithm that can detect species of mushrooms from a picture in just seconds. While AI identification can never be 100% correct every time, ours has the highest accuracy of all mushroom apps. This feature can also be used offline for our premium subscribers.

Step-by-Step Keys


Dichotomous mushroom identification keys are the original way to identify. You will be taken through a guide that asks you features about the mushroom. Once you reach the end of the step-by-step key, there will be only one type of mushroom left. Master these keys to become a true mycologist!

Research Mushroom Species


ShroomID contains the world's largest mycology encyclopedia and database. Enjoy heatmaps, seasonality charts, lookalikes, and much more. We have extensive data on thousands of species of mushrooms. This data will help you identify mushrooms. The entire encyclopedia can be downloaded for offline use as a premium feature.

ShroomGroups


Join mushroom groups to share photos with experts around the world. You can request help with an identification and get suggestions from the community. You can also share your awesome photography skills, or look at awesome photos shared by our community. We even have some professional mycologists that participate!

Mushrooms Growing Near You (Note: Premium Feature)


A feature unique to ShroomID, our app can tell you what to look for any time and any where in the world. Just enter a location and month, and ShroomID will tell you the most commonly found mushroom species.

ShroomTrainer®


Play our unique mushroom game. You will be shown images of a mushroom, and you will get to choose between four different options. Select the correct species, and you'll be able to continue to the next step. See if you can top the daily leaderboard!

Made with love for mushroomers, by mushroomers. 🍄❤️

I cannot speak to how well the ID feature works, but what I can say is that this app is an EXCELLENT tool for learning about mushrooms, if you can afford a pro subscription. The app is clearly cared about. When I gave feedback, they went out of the way to improve my experience, and fixed my only complaints day-of. Incredible responsiveness and service. Unfortunately, probably as a result of being very small team with large upkeep cost, the pro price is a bit too steep for me to justify buying.

This app is awesome, very attractive interface, easy to learn a lot! Appropriately warns about the photo identification - never use AI as your only identification step if you're foraging. The classification game/quiz is a ton of fun, and I love the new update that allows you to narrow possibilities step by step based on different features. I haven't used the pro features yet, but I intend to try them out once I'm somewhere I'm able to get outside more often. Excited to see what comes next!

Not really thorough enough for a newbie forager. It identifies multiple possibilities and links to external sources, much like Google, but with the addition of probability rank. I would like it better if it provided a decision tree... Does it have the 'skirt' or veil on the stem, does it have gills... Etc and increase effectiveness of the suggested type. On the plus side, I like how it provides location and season information because that helps get it in the ballpark for elimination.
