Marcel Bon (17 March 1925 – 11 May 2014) was one of France’s best known field mycologists. He was born in Picardy in 1925 and came to mycology through general botany, and pharmacology. He lived at Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, a quaint little town on the mouth of the river Somme, in Picardy, Northern France, which was a former artists' and writers' retreat, and is now a popular tourist town. In 1987, along with two artists (John Wilkinson, and Denys Ovenden) he produced a comprehensive field guide for mycologists, The Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and North-western Europe. His other skills were as a pianist, an artist, and a skier.
