About Us

Hygrocybe astatogala

The Sydney Fungal Studies Group Incorporated (SFSGI) consists of mycological and other academics, students, and many other, non-academic but interested people of all age groups.

The SFSGI aims to advance the study of fungi at all levels, particularly the larger fungi, to educate people at all stages of skill and knowledge in the science of mycology, and to interact with groups and societies having mycological or closely related interests.

Membership is open to all, with the only requirements being that they are interested in contributing to the activities of the Group, subscribe to the aims of the Group, and that they respect the basic principles of nature conservation.

NOTE - Following the AGM, The group is currently in a caretaker mode as a number of key positions were not filled. Field activities will still take place in a limited manner - with the emphasis on photography rather than collecting specimens.

Note - the next Field Activity was due for 23 July at Wolli Ck - but this has been postponed  due to an adverse weather forecast and the ground being very waterlogged.

It will now take place on Saturday 30 July 2022. At present the field activity is ON. Meet at the upper picnic area of Girrahween Park, Earlwood, at 9:45 am for a 10 am start.

The Sydney Fungal Studies Group started in the mid 1980's as a loosely associated, non-profit group of people interested in all aspects of fungi, and with an emphasis on Australasian fungi. 

The Sydney Fungal Studies Group incorporated in 2000 in order to allow it to formalise and expand its activities.
