Sir: In a recent article, Taphonomic Mycota: Fungi with Forensic Potential (1), David Carter and Mark Tibbett propose the use of various wild fungi for forensic purposes. As a mycologist, I found this paper very intriguing. However, I feel the authors have overstated the usefulness of many of the fungal species they list in the paper and accompanying data table. Furthermore, a number of errors were found within the data table. I offer this commentary to clarify these points.
