Mushroom taxonomy

I noticed this can list the taxonomy of different plants and the like, but does not have the ability to list the taxonomy of a species of mushroom. In fact there is no information regarding any species of mushroom.

Odd considering all the plants are there :)

Mushrooms are in the 'Fungi' category which is a dataset that WolframAlpha has not curated at this point in time.

However, expect it to be coming seen because of the cataloging of the 'Flora' category as well as a large section of 'Fauna'.

Hope this helped.

When I entered Boletus - I had returned a taxonomic hierarchy - so works for some Fungi it seems.

The fungi dataset seems to be filling out nicely since my last post, if there are any other specific fungi/bacteria/animals that you were unable to find through queries first review the syntax of your query. Then, after reviewing the forums to make sure the question has not already been addressed, submit feedback to the WA-Team so that any missing data is the set can be curated.

Feedback can be sent by the following methods.
1)http://www.wolframalpha.com/participate/participate.html
2)Filling out the feedback form that is sometimes provided when a query returns no results.
