MycoKey is an innovative information system to the fungi implemented as a computer program and an online service. MycoKey allows the user to perform simple searches or complex identifications using synoptic keys (also called interactive keys, multi-access keys or random-access keys) including the Morphing Mushroom Identifier. Identifications are done by means of check boxes and drop down menus through a fully illustrated interface. You enter the characters and MycoKey finds the likely genera.
As a result you will get taxonomic, nomenclatural and phylogenetic information and descriptions of genera and selected species. Running the installed version you can also analyze sets of genera to find discriminating characters between these.
MycoKey 4.0 covers more than 1,100 genera of the Basidiomycota and Ascomycota that occur in Northern Europe (i.e. Europe north of the Alps). MycoKey includes more than 3,300 species illustrated by more than 8,400 high quality illustrations, more than 24,000 cross references to literature and local names in Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Norwegian and Swedish.
