Corizus hyoscyami

Post by Deb » Sun Jun 07, 2015 4:18 pm

How common is this, which I guess is Corizus hyoscyami? It was on my tomato, and only took a shot of it because of the pretty colours, fully expecting it to be really common everywhere, but the NBN database does not back this up. I wondered if anyone on UK Fungi had any input.

Was it found in Southern England? If so, it's not that scarce, but infrequent.

Sorry, I forgot that Jimmy. It was North London. Thanks.

Firebug lookalike - http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/corizus-hyoscyami might help.
Not one we get up here Deb, seen it loads in Belgium and southern Europe, but south coast has them, perhaps yet another under-recorded species.
Cheers

Thanks Ken, I suspect under-recorded too. Cheers, Deb
