Fungi DNA identification through DNA barcoding can be utilised to reliably identify fungi species where a visual identification can be very difficult.
Fungi are one the largest and most diverse groups of organisms in the world. As we have the plant and animal kingdoms, fungi make up a kingdom of their own.
For something that is so important to ecosystems and biodiversity, fungi are under-studied when compared with animals and plants. There are estimated to be at least six times as many species of fungi than plants, anywhere between 2 and 11 million! Approximately only 150,000 of these have been officially described or recognised.
DNA barcoding can be utilised to reliably identify fungi species when a visual identification is unclear.

Any results obtained from this service are for interest only and should be used in combination with taxonomic studies where possible. We do not make recommendations regarding the edibility of fungi species and results should not be interpreted as confirmation that a sampled fungus is safe to be eaten at any time.
