**2020 Walks Update**
Unfortunately 2020 will be a write off, due to work & social commitments (and of course CoVid) I will not be able to have the time to do anything meaningful this season. Roll on 2021. I know there is considerable interest in tapping into my expertise but it's just not going to be feasible this year. Keep the photos and id requests coming and continue to enjoy all the fungi that you find!

Geastrum britannicum: A World First

Much excitement then as an Earthstar I found in 2000 and have recorded annually ever since, (always convinced it wasn't just a variant of the Rayed Earthstar), has finally been shown through DNA testing to be a completely new species not known anywhere else in the world! A veritable media frenzy ensued, well it made most of the national papers and global online editions, still waiting for 5 Live's Nicky Campbell to get in touch. Renown as being a skilled interviewer with a humorous side and the ability to cut to the heart of any topic I'm also hoping Nicky will be the same.

Stinkhorn Phallus impudicus

I planted an unhatched egg from a foray late 2014 into a bed of sawdust in the greenhouse and watered frequently. Nothing happened for 2 weeks then voila! out shot a Stinkhorn one night. Not very scientific but rewarding nevertheless. For those of you who want to try this at home you require:

1 x Greenhouse
1 x Sawdust mixed with soil and woodchip, rich humus
1 x Stinkhorn egg 
1 x Clothes Peg or Breaking Bad style ventilator mask
