This newsletter covers the activities of the Warwickshire Fungus Survey during 2006 as recorded by the group members and although its primary purpose is to present the mycological records, other articles and contributions would be welcome. The records generally concern the foray programme but non-foray records from individuals and other groups have also been included where they represent a new site record or an unusual / interesting occurrence. Where available, habitat and substrate information has been noted and observers are urged to record this important data whenever possible.
Species names have generally been taken from the Checklist of the British & Irish Basidiomycota (N. W. Legon, A Henrici et al) and the British Mycological Society’s computerised dictionary of fungus names (GBCHKLST, 27.03.04) but do not include the most recent changes such as the reclassification of Coprinus species. Where this name differs from that quoted in A Fungus Flora of Warwickshire (M. C. Clark) and is not yet in common usage, the original name is indicated for the first mention. In certain cases where species have been ‘lumped’ the original name is listed for future clarity.

* indicates new to site. Up-to-date lists are not available for all sites.

** indicates new to vice-county 38.

Databasing – Good News

At the WFS AGM in January 2007 it was decided that we must seek paid assistance to complete the transfer to the database of all our outstanding paper records within a reasonable time-scale. Consultation with Warwickshire Biological Records Centre has resulted in a collaboration for completion of entering all WFS records into the MycoRec database and their integration into WBRC’s Recorder database. Funding has been obtained from Birmingham Natural History Society and the British Mycological Society, matched by a contribution from WBRC which will enable us to employ a member of staff for this task through Warwickshire County Council. Preliminary work has begun.

Mycena species with a nitrous / alkaline smell

In the course of preparing paper records for the database my attention has been drawn to the problem of interpretation of earlier records of Mycena alcalina. Unless there are notes and habitat details this is a matter of guesswork and probabilities.
When one looks at all the Mycena species with a nitrous or alkaline smell it is obvious that care in identification is essential. As is so often the case, the final decision rests with microscopic characters. Volume 3 of Breitenbach & Kränzlin Fungi of Switzerland (1991) is likely to be the most readily available source of information. See also E. E. Emmett British Mycena species in The Mycologist volumes 6 & 7 (1992-1993) and R. A. Maas Geesteranus Mycenas of the Northern Hemisphere volume 2 (1992). And of course always for any Basidiomycetes with unfamiliar names (and sometimes also the familiar ones) consult Checklist of the British & Irish Basidiomycota (Legon & Henrici 2005) together with its supplements at (the first was available at the end of 2006).

M. leptocephala is associated with both broadleaved and coniferous stumps, fallen branches and woody debris. There are 1900 records on FRDBI.
M. renati is found on decaying broadleaved wood. There are 9 post 1970 records on FRDBI, but after analysis I conclude there are probably only two sites involved: North Lincolnshire 1 record in 2002 and West Sussex 4 records in 1974, 1979, 2001, 2004.
M. stipata is associated with coniferous wood. There are 281 records on FRDBI.
M. silvae-nigrae is associated with coniferous wood. There are 54 records on FRDBI with some duplication, mostly from Scotland and northern England, but 3 from Gloucestershire, 2 from Bedfordshire and one each from Staffordshire and Northamptonshire.
Also included in B&K is M. strobilicola on Picea cones which does not rate a mention in the Basidiomycota.

M. niveipes is an American species on broadleaved stumps recorded from ‘Europe’, with one unsubstantiated British record.
Early records of M. alcalina will have to be entered on MycoRec under that name with current name simply Mycena. Now there is opportunity to look for the different species in Warwickshire.

Foray Records 2006

As in other recent years the 2006 season was unpredictable. Rain in August produced an initial flurry of fungi in early September but these soon went and the heavy downpours during October had little effect until the end of the month. Frosts in November soon curtailed activities. It was a good year for Helvella and Otidea and various species of Agaricus notably the yellow stainer. Nevertheless several new county species were recorded.

Stockton Cutting Nature Reserve SSSI 23.04.06

Four visitors joined four regulars for this first foray of the year but few fungi were found.

Tile Hill Wood Nature Reserve 03.09.06

It was a bright and breezy morning for our visit to the Coventry Nature Reserve, which consists mainly of oak woodland, and we had a surprisingly successful foray. There were many species in the wood with Scleroderma verrucosum and Boletus chrysenteron plentiful along the main track. However, we saved the best to last when we were attracted to the school playing field that adjoined the wood, by a mass of Hygrocybe conica growing among various hawkbits. Here we found several fruitbodies of Amanita franchetii growing under oak and Leccinum aurantiacum under aspen.

Pooley Fields SSSI 10.09.06

This year we tackled Alvecote Pools from the Pooley Fields end by parking at the Heritage Centre near Polesworth. We left the car park and headed along the Coventry Canal under the motorway to the SSSI proper. This consists of a high mound of coal mining waste that is gradually being reclaimed by birch and other trees It is surrounded by the canal and many pools; some twenty-six hectares in all. Unfortunately there were only four of us present and this together with the dry, warm weather meant that fewer fungi were recorded. Identification was not improved by the far from fresh state of many of the fruitbodies.

This was our first visit to this private woodland for several years and the weather was pleasant after early rain. It is a mainly broad-leaved woodland on basic soil with a few conifers. Unfortunately the dry conditions meant that few fungi were recorded.

Bubbenhall Wood 01.10.06

A party of eight including two visitors met in the lay-by where Dave Champion showed us a large specimen of Boletus luridus that he had found up the road. We noted several species growing under birch in the car park, before heading up the lane, round the sand and gravel pit and finally into the wood. The light rain then turned to a torrential downpour and we were forced to retreat through a thunderstorm to our cars.

We made our way up the ‘gully’ where a variety of mainly common species were found. Fortunately the forecast rain did not arrive until we had finished.

On a beautiful, productive autumn morning we confined our explorations to the lawns and woodland verges of the crematorium. Highlights included many very large specimens of the White Saddle, a mysterious stocky, green agaric growing on Douglas Fir cones which turned out to be just Clitocybe odora, troops of Macrolepiota olivieri under fir and the second county record of Otidea bufonia (quickly followed by the third at Brandon Wood the following day).

Newbold Revel Foray Records

The group were invited to investigate the fungal flora of the grounds of this prison service training college as a contribution to their biodiversity action plan. The terrain consists of parkland with a stretch of scrubby woodland. Four members made two visits but on each occasion the weather had been dry and the fungi recorded were unlikely to be representative of more suitable conditions. However, some interesting fungi were found under the specimen trees including the first county record of Sowerbyella radiculata together with Geastrum striatum. A large group of Paxillus growing under Alder disappointingly turned out to be just P. involutus.

Four persons turned up for this foray, which was just as well, because before we could reach our destination, we had to move a large, but very rotten tree, which had fallen down across our path! The weather was fair and all agreed that it had been an interesting and enjoyable foray.
