Our current knowledge of the diversity of fungi found in the Outer Hebrides (Watsonian Vice-County 110) is largely based on the work of visiting professional and amateur mycologists. The species illustrated and described on this website have been recorded and photographed by Chris Johnson, a resident, amateur mycologist.
Biological recording in the Outer Hebrides is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.
Our knowledge of the diversity of fungal species and their distribution in the archipelago is still very patchy. The information currently available tends to reflect the interests of visiting mycologists and the sites they have visited rather than the status of the various groups of fungi within the islands. Distribution maps based on records from various sources, including OHBR, are available on the NBN Atlas Scotland, however the information is incomplete and the data should be interpreted with care.
