Downy mildews and albugos book

I've been asked to pass this on by Debbie and Ray. They're Oomycetes not proper fungi so I hope no-ones offended! but it's something else to look for in the garden whilst we're in lockdown. Dear Fellow Mycologists, Hope you are all well and finding plenty to occupy yourselves during the lockdown. Th...

Re: Latest update

Thanks Adam,
It's the content that we appreciate more than the logo etc.
Thank you for all your work in keeping the site going.
Current logo reminds me of a field trip to look at dune fungi at Freshwater East or Poppit Sands but i don't remember the palm trees!

Re: One to look out for

Is it everywhere where there is Griselinia? but no-one has looked for it before. The lesson to be learned is that when you import exotic plants into the UK then you don't really know what else comes in with them and what effects they might have everything else. Having said that I think this fungus i...

Re: One to look out for

Went shopping at the Torquay Lidl on Newton Road this morning (location) and had a quick look in the bottom of a Griselinia hedge next to the car park and found fbs on very old wet Griselinia leaves underneath. No photo this time. Further up the road near the hospital I looked in a very manicured lo...
