Questionable inclusion as BAP species

Questionable inclusion as BAP species

Postby admin » Sat Jan 31, 2009 6:32 pm

Stropharia hornemannii stands as one of the glaring anomalies of the current UK BAP list of fungi. On the FRD there is listed one pre-1960 unverified record from the Scottish Highlands. Post-1960 there is a single record dated 1983, again from the Scottish Highlands. If there are questionable anecdotal inclusions in the current BAP list, S. hornemannii is surely a prime candidate for deletion. It is widely distributed in montane North America but clearly outside of its optimum habitat range in the UK.
