List of U.S. state mushrooms

Two U.S. states, Minnesota and Oregon, have officially declared a state mushroom. Minnesota was the first to declare a species; Morchella esculenta was chosen as its state mushroom in 1984, and codified into Statute in 2010.[1] A third state, Missouri, has had a state mushroom proposed.
