Boletus edulis or edible Boletus, native to Europe, known in Italian as Fungo Porcino (plural 'porcini') (Pig mushroom), in German as Steinpilz (Stone mushroom), in Russian as "white mushroom", and in French the cep. Cantharellus cibarius (The chanterelle), The yellow chanterelle is one of the best and most easily recognizable mushrooms, and can be found in Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. There are poisonous mushrooms which resemble it, though these can be confidently distinguished if one is familiar with the chanterelle's identifying features.

This is good reference for mushrooms with its scientific names, but what I like best about those is the Grifola frondosa (Maitake Mushroom). This mushroom is quite handy. It can be used as medicine to lower bad cholesterol in the body, and it can also be used as the main ingredient in healthy dishes like salads and pastas.
