Hampshire Fungus Recording Group

Documenting the Fungi of Hampshire

White Hill - Sat 26 Sep 2015

Field event ID: HF1516

New Records:
New to Hampshire: Kavinia alboviridis, Inocybe hirtella var. bispora, Tarzetta spurcata
New to HFRG: Puccinia pimpinellae

Report: This was a joint visit with the Porton Down Group and provided HFRG with a new habitat to explore. We were very grateful to Ailsa McKee who made all the necessary arrangements that enable us to visit. There was one new resupinate record for Hampshire and the group found by Alan - Kavinia alboviridis - which has a spiny surface on a subiculum and also has spiny spores. The site is home to some notable Amanita species and Eric was able to find one of these which has yet again changed its name. In the UK this has been known as Amanita echinocephala but Geoffrey Kibby in his recent publication of British Amanitas has looked at the original drawing by Buillard of Amanita solitaria and this is clearly the same species and was published first which means it is the name we should be using. Just to add to the confusion the name Amanita solitaria has been used in the UK for another species which means this too has to be changed to Amantia strobiliformis. Eric also found the what seems to be a common 2 spored variant of Inocybe hirtella - I hirtella var. bispora. For those that like microfungi the group’s first record of Puccinia pimpinellae was found on its host Pimpinella. Two names for similar fungi were identified from the site: Tarzetta cupularis and Tarzetta spurcata , the latter being a new Hampshire record.
