Our current knowledge of the diversity of fungi and lichens found in the Outer Hebrides (Watsonian Vice-County 110) is the work of resident biological recorders and visiting professional and amateur mycologists and lichenologists.
Our unstanding of the range of species found in the islands and their distribution is patch as it tends to reflect the interests of the resident and visiting mycologists and the sites. 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.
Records of fungi and lichens observed in the islands should be forwarded to Outer Hebrides Biological Recording (OHBR) . Full details are available on the OHBR website.
Biological records submitted to OHBR are made publicly available via the National Biodiversity Network Atlas Scotland.
Biological recording in the Outer Hebrides is supported by NatureScot.
