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!

I see the "The Genus tricholoma in Britain" by Geoffrey Kibby has been re-listed as a 2nd edition (2017) with the original being published in 2012.
Does anyone know how different the two editions are?
"The Genus tricholoma" in the Fungi of Northern Europe (FNE) series is a tempting offering, it was published in 2013 and in based on species found in Northern Europe (from North France up.) As I live in Pembrokeshire, and regularly get battered by south westerly gales, I wonder if we get Portuguese or Galician species. This could include species not appearing in the FNE book. This brings me to the Fungi Europeia books, which are quite dated (1980s and supplement 2003) but include species from Southern Europe. Does the Kibby book include possible Iberian species?
