McIlvainea: Journal of American Amateur Mycology


McIlvainea is published by the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) and accepts original and review articles on all aspects of fungi.

“Birds, flowers, insects, stones delight the observant. Why not toadstools? A tramp after them is absorbing, study of them interesting, and eating of them health-giving and supremely satisfying.” -Charles McIlvaine(1840-1909)
