MycoMorphBoxes depict 8 mycological characteristics that are often useful in identifying mushrooms. The template is given as a quick way to display information about mushrooms, and to enable quick comparison between them.


Copy the following code into the article you want to add a MycoMorphBox to, and then add the parameters:

{{ mycomorphbox
| name            = 
| hymeniumType    = 
| capShape        = 
| whichGills      = 
| stipeCharacter  = 
| sporePrintColor = 
| ecologicalType  = 
| howEdible       = 


MycoMorphBoxes have 8 basic parameters:

name hymeniumType capShape whichGills stipeCharacter sporePrintColor ecologicalType howEdible
Name of the mushroom. Type of spore-bearing surface: gills, pores, et cetera. Descriptor of the general shape of the cap. Descriptor of how the hymenium attaches to the stem. Applies even to ridged, toothed and pored species, despite parameter name. Indicates if a universal or partial veil is present. Color of the spore print. Indicates how the mushroom obtains nutrients. Indicates whether the mushroom is edible or poisonous.

These basic parameters can be specified in any order, but should be typed exactly as above. For example:

Phlebopus marginatus
View the Mycomorphbox template that generates the following list
Mycological characteristics
gills on hymenium
cap is infundibuliform
hymenium is seceding
lacks a stipe

spore print is buff

to cream
ecology is mycorrhizal
edibility: unknown
{{ mycomorphbox
| name             = Phlebopus marginatus
| whichGills       = seceding
| capShape         = infundibuliform
| hymeniumType     = gills
| stipeCharacter   = NA
| ecologicalType   = mycorrhizal
| sporePrintColor  = buff
| sporePrintColor2 = cream
| howEdible        = unknown

Generates the mycomorphbox at right:

All parameters other than name and hymeniumType can now be specified with a secondary characteristic. For example, a mushroom might appear with both convex and flat caps at maturity, this can be indicated in the mycomorphbox by adding a second capShape parameter, simply by repeating the parameter name followed by the numeral 2:


This can be done with the following parameters: capShape, whichGills, stipeCharacter, sporePrintColor, ecologicalType, howEdible.
