I'm wondering if there are any experts on edible wild fungi in New Zealand, particularly in the Wellington area. I am among a number of people looking to learn more about what is forageable in New Zealand.
If you know of any books or resources that offer good information, in particular on fungi, preferably with photographs and good descriptions, on what is edible and what is poisonous. Please post details here.
If you are an expert on such things, or know of one, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am thinking of putting together a workshop/guided tour/nature walk on wild food in the area.
There are also discussions on the Free Food New Zealand facebook pages:

Please feel free to contribute any books or websites that may have good information about wild food in NZ. Fungi, plants, trees etc. The more information the better.
