Grace Boxshall (Fungi Sight) - Mycologist
Grace Boxshall is a Mycologist based in Melbourne. She spent her Masters degree researching the toxicity a mushroom which is commonly known as a yellow-staining Agaricus.
I first learnt of the research Grace was doing in 2018 when I poisoned myself with a wild Agaricus which had shown all the signs to be an edible variety.
Grace is also a founding member of Fungi Sight, a group who catalog and study various mushroom species in Australia.
It was great chatting with Grace about all things Agaricus, mushrooms, and I even learnt how to extract DNA in my own home!
