Recording Network

Recording Groups

Local Fungus Recording Groups now exist in many parts of the country helping to put mushrooms on the map in the UK. They are run on a voluntary basis by enthusiasts seeking to share their knowledge of wild fungi and improve your identification skills. They provide a welcoming environment for new members to enjoy exploring the world of fungi.

The network is loosely coordinated by the Network coordinator who passes on appropriate items of news and happenings, arranges a biennial weekend meeting for group leaders and coordinates the affiliation and BMS public liability insurance scheme.

Details of the affiliated groups are given on this website along with contact details for further information.

BMS Members can access the Recording Network News Bulletins

Group Leaders meeting (GLM)

Every two years a meeting of group leaders is organised by the Network Coordinator. The meeting usually starts on Friday evening and runs to Sunday lunchtime. A wide range of topics are discussed as well providing an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas in the more informal setting of the bar.
