Fungi can be found on The Island in a variety of places - dead wood, living wood, in undergrowth, across the meadow.  This page records fungi that have been found there.  Our aim is to build up a record of images and identifications of The Island's many fungi.

Thanks to Laurette Guest for photographing and identifying these fungi this autumn (2016).  Click on the photos for a larger scale image.
