I would get the Hymenoscyphus peruni checked at Kew though (not yet on the British list); Zotto's response seems somewhat qualified:

Hi Chris,
Yes, I guess you're right :D . That will be Hymenoscyphus cf. peruni in our records.
How exactly do you get things checked at Kew, and with all the appalling cuts to staff there, are they able to cope with checking IDs? When I first started sytematically recording fungi about 10 years ago I was seriously warned off sending stuff to Kew by one of our local BMS members. My impression was that such services were just reserved for a privileged few.

You could try emailing Brian Douglas b.douglas@kew.org in the first instance. He is very involved in the Lost and Found Project so I'm not sure how much time he has at the moment. Yours is not on top 100 sp. Priority List. Mark

Thanks Mark,
I'll stick with the cf. I think. I doubt if there's much left of the specimen. We are finding lots of stuff we cannot possibly hope to ID as we would need an army of specialists to do everything, so I'm happy to have a go at what I have in my box and then record to the appropriate level of certainty. It's good to get a reality check from a specialist site like Asco France.
Cheers,
Steve

Steve, If you want to send specimens to Kew you have to dry them properly - something I'm not expert with! Mark

In the first instance, sending an email to see if anyone has time to look is best. Although priority is with Lost & Found, new to Britain species might be of interest.

The staff cuts at Kew have mainly been in other departments. Mycology has escaped the worst. (there isn't a lot to cut anyway)

Hi,
We had few Amanita or Bolete records last year at the Longshaw Estate, so it was good to get a few at the end of August. Most of our finds were in Scots Pine woods.
The best find, by John, was of Hypomyces rosellus, under a log on an old Stereum sanguinolentum. Collybia cookeii – Splitpea Shanklet was another nice find. The only really common larger fungi we recorded were Sulphur Tuft, Clustered Toughshank, Deceiver, and Amethyst Deceiver, with Waxcaps hardly showing yet. Most of the scattered Pinkgills were Entoloma conferendum, though we found several other species. Other agarics or boletes were rather few in number.

Thanks one and all!
We're finding all sorts just now so hopefully Longshaw will live up to its reputation this year :D
