This was an oddity for a 1998 foray. Blue skies and shirt sleeve weather! It was a delightful dander amongst the spring flowers, but there were precious few fungi around even after extensive searching.

An extended heavy downpour marked this foray. Thank goodness it was a thick canopy! However, there was the first good haul of the year with Chanterelles and a Cep (albeit tiny) for good measure.

Hillsborough Forest 15 August 1998

Hillsborough lived up to its historical reputation and produced a fine haul of fungi. There was no shortage of Boletes, Amanita, Lactarius or Russulas. It was just a pity the same couldn't have been said for the wasps!

Glenveagh National Park 12/13 September

This was a two-day event with Gerry leading the Saturday foray (in pouring rain) and David, Roy and Gerry all leading the Sunday foray. The forays were well attended and good contacts were made. The list produced was full of good finds with Cortinarius bolaris (a distinctive Cortinarius!), a lovely specimen of Lactarius volemus  and the Bolete Leccinum rigidipes being the higlights This really beautiful site was enjoyed by all.

The Argory, 27 September 1998

 

This was a joint foray with the Armagh Field Naturalist’s Club and a very successful one two. The site proved to be very productive and the foray was graced with some perfect specimens instead of the usual just past their best things. Amanita inaurata (ceciliae), A.citrina, A.vaginata, Lactarius chrysorrheus and Tricholoma saponaceum var squammosum were all at their best and very sizeable too. Of the curious finds, Asterospora parasitica fruiting on a decaying Russula was the oddest.

Craigagh Wood – 24 October 1998

Severe storms, flooding, all but the brave (?) stayed at home on a day like this, but the amazingly good turnout here were treated to a lovely site and an excellent haul. 89 species for our young group is our longest list yet. The bolete, Tylopilus (Porphyrellus) porphyrosporus at its third site in NI was a good find as was Tricholoma columbetta. Of the ascomycetes, Hymenoscyphus fagineus, fruiting on beech mast was found at its second NI site. A particularly fine specimen of Tremella foliacea was found blown off a tree.

Slieve Croob 14 November 1998

This was hoped to be a waxcap foray, but on a bitterly cold day, only two species were found on the exposed slopes of Slieve Croob. The site was marked however by a carpet of the earth tongue, Geoglossum fallax. Everything we collected was G.fallax, but undoubtedly there were other earth tongues there, it was just G.fallax was all we picked up! The wind was biting though and we retreated into the coniferous plantation of Drumkeeragh. A good haul followed with the first Irish record for Inocybe sindonia the highlight, but excellent specimens of the slimy Hygrophorus hypothejus, Lactarius hepaticus and Clavaria rugosa were found.
