Waxcap survey of Cumbria


Thought anyone anyone who lives or visits Cumbria might be interested in this.

Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre is currently co-ordinating a Waxcap Fungi survey and are asking for any sightings to be submitted to their website.

Details of the website are below. There is also a photographic identification leaflet available for downoload off the website which provides a good guide to the commoner species.

I don't live anywhere near

I don't live anywhere near Cumbria so can't join in, but thanks for the info... and the link to the Waxcap ID page, which also leads to a useful Waxcap key.
