About Us

Shropshire is an exciting county with its

meadows, woodlands, hills, meres and

mosses. Within these habitats flourishes an

extraordinary fungus flora ranging from the

deliciously edible Penny Bun to the highly

poisonous Death Cap.

Formed in 1992 the Shropshire Fungus Group

now has about 30 members and our principal

aim is to find, identify and record as many

species of fungus as we can. We have a few

knowledgeable people who help and instruct

the less expert of us. We organise a

programme of forays throughout the

county each year. All the species we

identify are entered onto our database.

The records are also sent to the British

Myological Society for inclusion in their

national database.

So far we have well over 40,000 records

covering over 3,200 species, but we

believe there are a thousand or more

still to find. If you would like to learn

more about this subject and help us

find the remaining species why not join

us. For more information about our

activities contact our Secretary, Philip Leather.
