Charles McIlvaine

An intrepid mycophagist and lover of all things Fungi, Charles may have eaten between 400 and 800 species of mushroom during his lifetime. I follow in his footsteps as a careful toadstool tester and ate my 300th species (Floccularia straminea) in 2005. 

He co-authored the book, One Thousand American Fungi, with Robert Macadam.
