Looking around on the fell yesterday seeing what else could be found (or at least identified) and managed another two species.
One was a fungi, Fairy Ring Champignon (Marasmius oreades). This is a very common species, often on lawns, though these were on the path by Wanister bog. And its edible, though it must be cooked before eating.
The other species was a big surprise thought the habitat always seemed perfect for them, it's the first time I have ever see it here despite much searching and indeed I have failed to come up with any old records either. This was a species of dragonfly, the Black Darter, and I was very happy with species number 1002
