Fungal Recording

FRDBI

Records of fungal fruiting observed by BMS members and/or Recording Groups in Britain and Ireland are recorded in the Fungal Records Database of Britain and Ireland (FRDBI www.frdbi.info).

You can also find the FRDBI via the National Biodiversity Network records database, the NBN Atlas www.nbnatlas.org and GBIF data.gbif.org There are now over 2 million records covering four centuries.

(Note that records from the previous version of FRDBI are being transferred to the current site.)
