Fungi options missing

Submitted by fungalpunk on

I am still having no luck trying to record Neotiella albocincta on Irecord - a confirmed first for the UK by bryophilous expert George Grieff.  Also I have recently found and had confirmed Roseodiscus formosus and this is not an option on Irecord - can anyone help and allow these to be recorded please - sincere thanks.

iRecord uses the UK Species Inventory (UKSI) as its database rather than having its own separate one, so for new species they need to be added to the UKSI by the team at the Natural History Museum, this then presumably gets periodically synched with iRecord, NBN and all of the other websites that use it. 

I've just checked both of the species you mentioned and they haven't yet been added to the UKSI. I would therefore advise sending them an email to find out if they are aware of the species and just haven't had a chance to add them yet, if they need further information before adding them or if they just weren't aware of them. Contact details can be found at

Thank you mate - that is a superb response and I have duly contacted the UKSI team - fingers crossed for a positive response.  Keep up the excellent work, it is greatly appreciated by we in-the-field pootlers and recorders.
