Both names are fine

Both scientific names appear together in my books so if you are wondering why the carousel hasn't appeared you are probably the first observation! Collins says widespread but uncommon - how helpful is that? Anyway I am green with envy and toying with the idea of a trip to Basingstoke to try to see one!! The location seems to be near Odiham.

Location

Hi Janet, I was surprised to see them and had to do a double take. If you look on my website (address below) there is a contact me button, e-mail me and I'd be more than happy to give you a precise location. I will also amend the map location on iSpot to be more accurate. Regards Chris.

Weather

All I'd say Janet is that the weather is taking its toll and I think they are over their best.

Seen them!

I wonder what the fungi alternative to a twitcher is? Going over now but quite a group. Growing in freshly moved soil that had been turned over when making a nearby footpath - I wonder if they've grown here in previous years or been disturbed from somewhere else?

Twitching is a British term

Twitching is a British term used to mean "the pursuit of a previously-located rare bird." Want to see my Verpa conica? http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/260549
