Hints on collecting and recording can be found on the BMS website, or downloaded here:

Also on the BMS site is a draft Red Data List. More up-to date Red Lists are being published by the Fungus Conservation Trust and can be found here.

Latin names are used in recording for the trees and plants associated with  fungi; here is a list with English equivalents:

Here is a list of all fungi found in the Forest of Dean since recording commenced (please note this is a very large document, do not open it on a mobile phone as it may download.)  This replaces the previous document, which accidentally included finds from other areas of Gloucestershire;  the list includes all species recorded up to 2016.

Foray reports can be found on the Members’ Page.

Fungus records are all submitted to the national databases hosted by the British Mycological Society and the Fungus Conservation Trust, and to the Gloucestershire Centre for Environmental Records.

If you have any queries about fungus recording in the Forest of Dean, or would like to submit records of any fungi you have found (including location, date, grid ref, habitat, host species, substrate and ideally photographs), you are invited to submit them to records@deanfungusgroup.com. Please note that it is rarely possible to make an accurate identification of a fungus solely from photographs.
