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 main activities are

foraying and recording our finds.

We have a core of knowledgeable people who

help and instruct the less expert of us. We

organise a programme of forays throughout

the county each year. At some point after the

foray all the species are entered onto our

database. This is building up a picture of the

fungi found in the county and will hopefully

highlight any changes occurring with time.

The records are also sent to the British

Myological Society for inclusion in their

national database.

We also share records with the Shropshire

Wildlife Trust and the Natural Shropshire

website. So far we have 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.
