Here in Indiana, it is suspected that we may have only identified one third of all fungus that grows in the state. If you would like to do some citizen science and assist with adding to the data available there are 2 ways you can help. The first applies to anywhere in the world, and the second is specific to Indiana.
For anywhere in the world, there is a website and app where you can record any findings and create a list of observations through pictures uploaded from the app to https://www.inaturalist.org/. You can also search by your location and see what other people have found in your area. It’s a rather fun website to explore.
Specific to Indiana, The Hoosier Mushroom Society does online mushroom forays where you can help add data by using the Inaturalist app in addition to taking samples around your home area and sending them in for analysis. You need to order ID slips in advance for this, and can find all the information you need at their website. http://hoosiermushrooms.org/index.php?/activities/hms-online-forays-2018
