Manic Miner

The leaf-mining micro-moth Stigmella malella, found yesterday on apple leaves, was number 1,700 on the Nunnery Lakes all-taxa list (including aggregates not identifiable by us to species). Quite a few new leaf-miners in the last week, plus an excellent weekend fungus foray where we were again joined by Tony Leech. The fungal highlight was the first Entoloma atrocoeleum for the east of England, plus the first inland Norfolk record of Galerina atkinsoniana. Other new fungi included Blackening Waxcap, White Spindles, Orange Mosscap, Yellow Fieldcap, Shaggy Ink-cap, Clustered Domecap, Ugly Milkcap and Tiger's Eye.
