This newsletter covers the activities of the Warwickshire Fungus Survey during 2010 as recorded by the group members and although its primary purpose is to present the mycological records, other articles and contributions would be welcome. The records generally concern the foray programme but non-foray records from individuals and other groups have also been included where they represent a new site record or an unusual / interesting occurrence. Where available, habitat and substrate information has been noted and observers are urged to record this important data whenever possible.
Reminder: Would forayers submitting dried specimens for the herbarium please ensure that they are accompanied by notes, particularly of characters that cannot be checked from dried material. These include, for agarics, fresh colour and any colour changes with age, handling or bruising and changes to the flesh colour when the fruit body is longitudinally sectioned; is the cap and or stem viscid, sticky?; peelability of the cap (Russula), milk colour and changes on drying (Lactarius); smell; taste. Also please provide a spore print and details of the literature consulted in arriving at a determination.
Species names have generally been taken from the Checklist of the British & Irish Basidiomycota (N. W. Legon, A Henrici et al) and the British Mycological Society’s computerised dictionary of fungus names (GBCHKLST, 27.03.04). Where this name differs from older names and is not yet in common usage, the older name is indicated in brackets for the first mention. In certain cases where species have been ‘lumped’ the original name is listed for future clarity. Note that updates 1 to 4 to the above checklist are now available at website References to the Flora relate to A Fungus Flora of Warwickshire (M. C. Clark) 1980.

Foray Records 2010

At last a good year! The warm, dry weather in June and July followed by rain in August provided the right conditions for high numbers of fruit bodies with many interesting species.

Rough Hill Wood Nature Reserve 25.04.10

Early rain had cleared and eight met for the first foray of the year at this Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (WWT) reserve near Redditch. In the small pond at the top of the hill we were surprised to see a Mallard with twelve recently hatched ducklings.

Sutton Park (Banners Gate) 04.07.10

This foray was scheduled to capitalise on the regular wet periods in recent years during June; naturally this year was exceptionally dry. Two couples attended and rather than make a pointless search for fungi decided to explore the marshy areas north-west of Longmoor Pool for interesting flora. Among the plants noted were Round-leaved Sundew and Common Butterwort at their only site in Warwickshire, Bogbean, Marsh Cinquefoil, Marsh Valerian, Bog Pimpernel, Monkey Flower, Southern Marsh Orchid, Bottle Sedge and Narrow Buckler Fern.

Whichford Wood 22.08.10

Ten of us arrived for another earlier than usual autumn foray and this time met with some success as the recent rains had encouraged a crop of fungi to appear, notably a large number of Chanterelles. A superb specimen of the Oak Bracket was found. Several interesting boletes were found by DC and DG who continued the foray later.

The forecast was for showers but it rained persistently for the two hours of the foray and then the sun came out. There were an impressive sixteen attendees and a good variety of fungi were discovered in this mixed woodland. The highlight was the first county record of Boletus legaliae, an excellent specimen found in the roadside verge before we entered the wood.

Oversley Wood 19.09.10

Twelve were present on a warm, dry day to explore this Forestry Commission wood where conifers, mainly pines and Western Red Cedars, are gradually being replaced by broad-leaved woodland, currently oak with some Beech. The excellent season continued with variety and good numbers of species.

This was our first visit to the WWT reserve near Henley-in-Arden consisting of two meadows known for their variety of plants which attract many insects. It was very much an exploratory occasion and rather disappointingly few fungi were found. The meadows were very water-logged and the trees in the hedgerows unproductive. An interesting find by Val Roberts was of a Green Woodpecker’s dropping containing the remains of many ants.

Please can you help with rusts on Red Campion (Silene dioica) in Warwickshire

If you find the brown pustules of a rust fungus growing on living leaves of Red Campion (Silene dioica) please would you keep specimens for me.

In Warwickshire between 1965 and 2001 all records of a rust fungus on S. dioica were of the species Puccinia arenariae. A second species, Puccinia behenis has been recorded occasionally in Britain as early as the 1920s and in 2002 it was found for the first time in Warwickshire. Since then both species have been recorded here, sometimes on the same leaf. It would be useful to establish the current distribution and frequency of the two rust species.
Red Campion is a widespread plant growing mainly in hedges, woods and at roadsides. Both rusts form brown protruding pustules, each 0.25 (up to 1mm) across, usually on the lower side of living green leaves. The pustules are sometimes clustered in concentric circles, at other times scattered. If you spot rust please could you collect several infected leaves, ideally from more than one host plant, lightly press them between dry newspaper, keep details of location and date and tell me. I would like to see them as the two species are decisively distinguished under a microscope (P. arenariae forms only two-celled teliospores and P. behenis usually occurs as single-celled urediniospores). Rust fungi have been recorded on Red Campion in all months of the year (excluding March, when they would probably be present if looked for).
Records from other parts of Britain and of rust fungi on other species of campion (Silene) would also be of interest.
Thank you,
Gill Brand
