Hi D
Yeah, that's often a problem with records, it's not that people aren't seeing them, just that they aren't recording! Alternatively, there may well be mycologists doing recording but that their records a) aren't getting passed onto their local records centre, and b) the local records centre might not be putting the data onto the NBN.
