  1. Hope it's a good fungi season, Ali. I'm pleased to report that I've seen a few recently, just waiting for them to be verified. Luckily a friend of mine is a fungi expert, otherwise I'd be lost. I hope this isn't regarded as cheating!

    1. Absolutely not. I'll definitely be referring things, probably across all taxa!
