Carmarthenshire Grassland Fungi Survey
• The Carmarthenshire Biodiversity Partnership are launching a grassland fundi survey this autumn. • Can you take a close look in your local cemetery, well-established lawn, or old unfertilized grasslands and let us know what you find? • Look out for bright coloured mushrooms, sometimes with bizarre fingery shapes. The amazing range of colours may surprise you: the green Parrot, pink Ballerina, red Splendid, orange Honey and white Snowy waxcaps; yellow, white and violet coral fungi, olive earth tongues and golden spindles! • It’s easy to report. What we need is: Who? - your name and contact details, What shape and colour? – a photo would be great! Where? – a grid reference or postcode, When? – the date. • Send your records to: Biodiversity Officer, Carmarthenshire County Council, Conservation Section, Planning Department, Civic Offices, Crescent Road, Llandeilo SA19 6HW; IMacho@carmarthenshire.gov.uk; 01558 825390.
