An excellent chance to see species distributions in nearby Europe. Excellent Dutch website - here starting with their first in alphabetical order (and a fungus familiar to most of us . . . ): https://www.verspreidingsatlas.nl/0330010

I have just received an email from Hermann Voglmayr in Vienna letting me know that the paper on Helminthosporium and allied fungi which he has been working on is now freely available, as a downloadable PDF file, on-line: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 1617300210

Helminthosporium velutinum will probably be known to anyone who has looked at the micro-fungal communities of dead stems and twigs - Steve I suspect will find this very useful. I was pleased to be able to provide him with material of Helminthosporium (Corynespora) caespitosum as part of this study.

A few new books are out this year

Grassland Fungi: A Field Guide - Wood, E., Dunkelman, J. (Monmouthshire Meadows Group)
Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain & Europe Volume 1. 2nd Edition - Geoffrey Kibby - looks to be the defining new field guide, but haven't seen it yet. Volume 1 features the non-agarics. It quickly sold out and a second printing is underway.

Mention also should be made of the British Fungus Flora range with a reprint of vol 5 / Strophariaceae & Coprinaceae p.p. Hypholoma, Melanotus, Psilocybe, Stropharia, Lacrymaria & Panaeolus which, at £7.95 for 121 pages is very good for a specialist work.

Poroid Fungi of Europe 2nd Edition - Synopsis Fungorum volume 31: - published and soon in shops
Fungi: Mushrooms & Toadstools of parks, gardens, heaths and woodlands - Andy Overall (due end of November)

Book reviews welcome!
