Ro sent her records form the Rona trip and added three more to the species list for NG66: Fragaria vesca, Lathyrus pratensis and Phegopteris connectilis. A further six are new to NG66F: Asplenium adiantum nigrum, Brachypodium sylvaticum, Hymenophyllum wilsonii, Rumex acetosella, Scutellaria galericulata and Trifolium pratense. She also deserves credit for some of those I listed as new in these categories earlier as she spotted them on the same day.

There was a recent call from HBRG to look out for interesting fungi on leaves of Honeysuckle.  One, Kabatia periclymeni, is regarded as very rare but Murdo found it as soon as he looked for it in Strathpeffer and the first honeysuckle I looked at during my Ollach day turned out to be hosting it:

Probably not rare in the Highlands, then.

    Kabatia periclymeni was first recorded on Eriskay lasy year and according to Chris Yeates (micro-fungi) expert it is regarded as rare. However, this is obviously not the case in the Highlands, so it either has a NW distribution in the the UK and may be locally common, or it is highly seasonal and the wet cool conditions are favourable.
    We’ve not found it in the outer isles this year, but it is on our species watch list.
