Learn how to identify the striking waxcap fungi and discover details about their environmental importance.

Waxcap fungi are a striking and highly colourful group but their variety in colour and form can make them difficult to identify. 

Join expert Rob Foster for some tips on how to identify them from their appearance, smell and even taste, and how a number of waxcap species and other associated fungi can be used to evaluate the environmental  importance of sites as waxcap grasslands. 

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Christmas cards and calendars will also be on sale.
