This guide covers wild edible mushrooms of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, the Rocky Mountains and Western Canada.

As a safety precaution, all mushrooms should be cooked and eaten in small quantities if not previously consumed. Warning: do not attempt to identify a mushroom by matching the pictures alone; compare all the listed characteristics. Never experiment with a mushroom that you cannot positively identify.
