Abstract
Pilzfinder.at is a citizen science project of the Austrian Mycological Society (ÖMG) in
cooperation with the citizen science app platform Spotteron and listed on the citizen science
platform “Österreich forscht”. Citizen scientists document fungal observations by
photography supplemented with notes on ecology. Nearly 2000 observations from 50 citizen
scientists were produced in 2019, including rare species observations. Engagement of citizen
scientists significantly improves research regarding to distribution and ecology of fungi in
Austria and increases the reliability of forecasts for Red Lists and for fungal threats globally
