Documenting the Fungi of Hampshire

Shortheath Common - Sun 14 Sep 2014

Field event ID: HF1414

New Records:
New to HFRG: Tomentella cinerascens
New to VC12: Russula robertii

OS Grid areas: SU7736

Weather: Mostly dry after heavy rain several weeks earlier

Report: Hopes were raised when Sue, Ginnie and Izzy returned from a pre-foray “comfort break” with a handful of agarics and so it proved. Despite the apparently dry conditions, agarics were quite plentiful and reasonably variable with 11 Russulas, 4 Lactarius, 8 boletes, including 4 “birch boletes ” (Leccinum scabrum, holopus, variicolor and cyaneobasileucum) and Alan found a tall tall sticky-capped agaric in the moss, which he identified as Hypholoma myosotis. Apart from the cap‘nstems, Paul was complaining (again) about having insufficient space for all his resupinates, Sue found the white spindles of Clavaria acuta and Tony discovered a single specimen of Peziza limnea in a similar location to where it was found last year, although the higher water table prevented us venturing quite so far into the bog this time. Find of the day probably goes to a grey resupinate uncovered by Sue in a pile of willow logs at the end of the day, which turned out to be (always was!) Tomentella cinerascens, the first time it has been recorded in Hampshire since 1916.
