Area Warwickshire (Vice County 38) mainly

This informal group has recently been formed from the Warwickshire Fungus Survey which was unable to form a committee because of ill health and age. The original Survey was established in 1968 with the aim of producing a Fungus Flora of Warwickshire. After 15 years of intense activity, the Flora was published by the British Mycological Society in 1980.

The group plans to continue the tradition of 12 or more forays per season. A Newsletter will be produced and circulated every year giving the lists of fungi seen from all of the previous year’s forays along with other Warwickshire records from the Group.

Specimens of rare species or species new to the Vice County are dried, their details entered on cards, and added to the herbarium run by County Museum in Warwick.

Forays usually begin at 10.30 am on Sundays and usually finish at lunchtime, but occasionally go on into the afternoon. New members continue to join us, and are always welcome, whether beginners or not. Forays are not specifically aimed at children, but they may attend, accompanied by an adult.
