If you would like to join us, send us an e-mail.  If you have any records or rare or dried specimens, please contact David Mitchel also at   

Membership is a snip at only £5. This gets you an annual newsletter, insurance cover when out foraying and the opportunity to learn more on forays. If you would like to join us on a foray, there is a £1 charge for non-members (but not children).

The group is affiliated to the British Mycological Society and is a member of the Association of British Fungus Groups. We are also a member of the Environmental Recorders Group, a group of biological recorders from all disciplines in Northern Ireland and the National Federation of Biological Recorders. 

If you think you or someone you know has been poisoned but eating a wild fungus, please contact the Irish National Poisons Information Centre immediately (or equivalent in your country). If possible keep a specimen of the fungus you ate. You will need to describe it as well as possible. In the Northern Ireland Fungus we are only amateur mycologists and may not be able to help. Fungi are difficult, sometimes impossible, to identify from a photograph alone and we may not be immediately contactable.
