Scope and Aims
Mycological Observations is an international, online only, bilingual (English and Italian), open-access journal treating all aspects of taxonomy, systematics and evolution of fungi.
  Alongside papers of international standing, it also publishes articles of lesser standing with the aim of helping novice mycologists to grow and of contributing to local mycological activism and research.    
Our history

The journal Mycological Observations was founded in 2021 from an initiative promoted by a group of mycologists gahered under the informal name GMV (Gruppo Micologi di Verona) and its first volume, issued on november 15, 2021, was published in the website of the Gruppo Micologico e Naturalistico DLF Verona. Since volume 6, issued on March 8, 2023, the journal is on its own website (https://www.mycolobs-journal.org).
