 Record Description Clavulinopsis helvula or Fairy yellow club is one of a number of colourful and interesting fungi seen during a recent walk across calcareous grassland on the Main Limestone on the upper slopes of Booze Moor close to the White Gang Lead Vein Mine. Other fungi species seen included several different Hygrocybe species (wax caps) and Geoglossum cookeianum (common earth tongue).Just two horse mushrooms were seen. Mushrooms, once common on unimproved limestone grassland are now very scarce or entirely absent.
 Additional Notes A very good guide to British Fungi is Collins Wild Guide: Brian Spooner, 1996. 'Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe.'
