Hyphae are what content units called like in MycorrhizaWiki. It usually is an attachment (image, video, etc) with text description or a text note, article, etc.

Hypha names

Hypha names are case-insensitive. It means that names amanita muscaria and Amanita Muscaria are same. Also, space and underscore are also the same. Canonical names are all lowercased and have underscores. These are links to the same hypha:

There are some characters that cannot be part of a hypha name: ?!:#@><*|"'&%{} Others can be used.

If a hypha has a slash in its name, the hypha is a subhypha of some other hypha. For example, amanita/muscaria and amanita/regalis are both subhyphae of hypha amanita. Amanita is not a subhypha of any hypha.

Text part

Text parts are written in mycomarkup .

Editing text

When you visit edit-pages of hyphae, you can use the form there. You can also edit files directly if you have access to the wiki server but it's not safe.


Every type of data can be stored as an attachment, but only some of them will render in the browser. Others can still be downloaded.

Supported image formats

  • .jpg

  • .gif

  • .png

  • .webp

If there's demand on other image formats, they can be added. The problem is that there is no significant support for other image formats in the browsers.

  • .ogg

  • .webm

  • .mp4

Supported audio formats

Uploading attachment

There's a form at end of every page. Once there is an attachment, it can be unattached.


All hyphae are stored on file system. Text parts have the .myco extension, attachments have any extension they need.

MycorrhizaWiki indexes all those files on start or when /reindex is requested by an admin. For every existing hypha there must be a binary file, a text file or both. If there are several binary files for the same hypha, only one of them is used.
