The science behind this debate

Is focused foraging for edible fungi justifiable?

In May this year I discovered Phellinus wahlbergii inside a hollow Oak. Dr Martyn Ainswoth suggests spores may have come over with Sahara winds and settled in Britain and I can't argue with that, although obviously it must be a rare occurrence.
Yet the Giant Puffball produces billions of spores, but you cannot call this a common species.

When I mentioned there being better tasting mushrooms available in the shops, I obviously meant the Agaricus bisporus derivative. But all this talk of being highly nutritious is complete rubbish, low in fat, yes, but 90% of fungi is water.
Apart from Hydnums, I have tried all Geoff has mentioned above and only B.edulis could I eat on a regular basis maybe, followed by Oyster fungi, but on a regular basis, I'm sure I'd get sick and tired of them as I do the others. Agaricus augustus is good, but the flavour is just too intense.

Save our wildlife - eat shop bought mushies !

Neil.

Study of the nutritional content of Fistulina hepatica:

It contains anti-oxidants and other organic acids.

You can actually taste the vitamin C in beefsteak fungus, so there must be a significant amount.
