During a survey by the Mushroom Task Force Drenthe on November 2, 2015 in the Takkenhoogte nature reserve near Zuidwolde the Sarcoleotia platypus mushroom was found. At the time of the composition of the Red List of Mushrooms in 2008 the latest find dated from 1965, so Sarcoleotia platypus was considered extinct in the Netherlands.
