Shropshire  Fungus Group

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

has over 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 submitted to the Fungal Records Database

of Britain and Ireland, and we share records with the

Shropshire Ecological Data Network.

We now have over 50,000 records covering over 3,000

species, but we believe there are many more to find. A

checklist of fungi recorded in the county can be seen

here. If you would like to learn more about this subject

and help us find further species why not join us. For more

information about our activities contact our Secretary,

Philip Leather.

PLEASE NOTE. WE INTEND TO CARRY OUT A PROGRAMME OF FORAYS THIS YEAR, BUT THIS WILL DEPEND UPON CHANGING MEASURES TO CONTROL THE COVID VIRUS. PLEASE CHECK HERE FOR NEWS.
