But on the day, you would need to fill up the ‘original K forms’ again (yellow colour), together with the one that you downloaded from the website. Get your pass at the Security Guard outside the gate. Proceed to the Consular Section (or Konsular hall in Malay, just ask for directions from the guard). Look for the their staff at the right corner of the hall, the hall is quite small, well, I should call it a room.

I was playing in a competition so did not have time to examine them more closely. Wednesday 17th December 2014 I was asked to send a sample of my finds of Astrosphariella stellata, an Ascomycete that I found on my old bamboo canes, to Peter Thompson. I keep giving all my specimens away and I have not kept any for myself. I found some very small brown fungi on soil last week that I could not identify. I contacted those who are interested in this species and ALL want a piece of this species.
A Melanoleuca has me foxed but a lot of them look the same. Thursday 4th December 2014 People know I am interested in fungi and send me terrible photos, asking me to identify them.
The larger spores and type of cystidia ruled out the common ones, the only one I could find that fitted all the microscopic features was Melanoleuca schumacheri but this is a Red Data species. One looks like a tiny Collybia with very small white spores. I note that the genus has been changed to Gymnopus (Collybia). Here is the latest (one of the better ones) found in a churchyard. Monday 1st December 2014 I have been contacted by The Biodiverse Society, a partnership of various wildlife trusts, who are looking for volunteers to assist with surveying sites, recording wildlife and training people to do these things.
Wednesday 24th December 2014 The spore print from the supposed Lyophyllum that I picked yesterday was not right. But it was beside a bus stop where people were waiting.
