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, and we share records

with the Shropshire Ecological Data Network.

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.
