Fungi & Moths

The two fungi I showed images of for NG64 on the mainland have been identified as the “magic mushroom” Psilocybe semilanceata and the waxcap Hygrocybe marchii. Bruce also managed to identify a further eight fungi from the infected leaf specimens I sent him including one that was the first for Wester Ross. So that was worth doing.

Two nights ago I put the moth trap out again and caught only three moths but one was Golden-rod Brindle, the third record for Raasay, the previous two being recorded at Holoman House by John Knowler in August/September 2014. Brian says there are no records for Skye, though NBN disagrees.
