To use the key while you have internet access, simply click above (where it says "click here to use the key").

To load a local copy onto your laptop or SmartPhone for use in the wilderness with no internet access, download the .zip file and save it to your laptop's hard drive.

Laptop instructions

  1. Unzip the file and you will see a web page you can click on (to start using the key) and a directory containing all of the supporting files.

iPhone/iPad instructions

  1. From the iPhone/iPad AppStore, download the free app "HTML Reader Lite" by "CHIA HO KUO". If you don't want to be bothered by ads, there is a 99 cent version "HTML Reader". I have tested more than half a dozen web page browsers from the app store and this is the only one that works properly.

  2. First, delete the old copy of the key, if you already have been using an old one in that app. Start the "HTML Reader" app. If you don't see the main menu, click on "Menu" in the top left. Now click on "Open". Click on "Up" near the top left of the screen a few times. (If you accidentally click on the magnifying glass, press Cancel). If you already have a "PNWMushrooms" folder, click on "Edit" at the top right of the screen. Then click the red delete icon next to the "PNWMushrooms" folder. Confirm the deletion by pressing "Delete". Then click "Done" in the top right.

  3. Run iTunes on your laptop and plug in your iPhone/iPad to your laptop.  Click on the icon for your iPhone/iPad once it appears, and choose "Apps" from the Settings menu. Scroll down to the bottom of that page. In the File Sharing section, click on "HTML Reader" in the Apps list. In the bottom right of the "HTML Reader Documents" window, click "Add File..." then locate the PNWMushrooms.zip file that you downloaded from this site and put on your laptop and choose it. It will then upload to your phone. As soon as it appears in the Documents list, it is ready.

  4. Go back to your iPhone/iPad and start the "HTML Reader" app again. If you don't see the main menu, click on "Menu" in the top left. Now click on "Open". Click on "Up" near the top left of the screen a few times. (If you accidentally click on the magnifying glass, press Cancel). Now you will see "PNWMushrooms.zip". Click on it. It will ask you if you want to unzip it. Answer "yes" and wait a minute or so. It doesn't look like it is doing anything, but it is. Finally a "PNWMushrooms" folder will appear. You can now delete the "PNWMushrooms.zip" file if you would like.

  5. Click on the "PNWMushrooms" folder and you will see another "PNWMushrooms" folder and a "PNWMushrooms.htm" file. Click on that file to start the pictorial key.

  6. When using the key, the blue arrow in the top right makes the menu bar go away, and the tiny almost invisible blue arrow in the top left makes it come back. You will need the menu bar for the green backward and forward navigation buttons.

  7. Every time you start the "HTML Reader" app, if you are not already in the key, press "Menu" and then "Read" to go back to the Pictorial Key. If that does not work, use the "Open" menu option and navigate back to the "PNWMushrooms.htm" file, and click on it to start the key. Enjoy!
