Checklists of Exmoor's Wildlife
In 1996 ENHS produced The Flora and Fauna of Exmoor National Park listing 8243 species which had been recorded. (Now out of print). Since then there have been a number of additions published annually in Exmoor Naturalist magazine. The following lists show what we have recorded so far and it is hoped there will be future updates.

Fungi
Includes Slime Moulds, Rusts & Smuts, Ascomycetes & Basidiomycetes
Note: We have few up-to-date records of the Slime Moulds and Rust Fungi and these lists therefore rely on the work of the late Norman Hadden which took place mainly in the 1940’s. Any information on more recent studies would be appreciated.
