Distribution Maps for Grassland Fungi in Wales

Maps last updated 10/03/2018

These maps display the distribution within Wales of the grassland fungi groups that are good indicators of grasslands of conservation interest. These include the Waxcaps (genus Hygrocybe s.l.), the Fairy Clubs (family Clavariaceae), the Earth Tongues (family Geoglossaceae), the Pink Gills (genus Entoloma) and a selected group of other species also occurring in grassland sites of mycological interest. The data that drives these maps is derived from a dataset created by Shelley Evans and Liz Holden for the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) of all known grassland fungi records in Wales up to 2003, the CCW Grassland Fungi Survey 2003-05 and data kindly provided by the FRDBI and many Welsh mycologists in 2017/18. If you have records that could add to this dataset, please download this Excel spreadsheet and send the records to me at david.mitchel@nifg.org.uk

All maps are created using DMap. The circles represent 10km squares.
