Re: Exobasidium on Vaccinium myrtillus

Hi Mark
I would go with E. myrtilli though I have never seen E. aequale (afaik it's not on the British list).
Cheers

Re: Newbie ID request!

Hi and welcome to the site "Little Brown Jobs" are seldom straightforward - depending on the amount of rain/dry conditions the caps can vary a lot. I would suggest you have a species of Panaeolus there; there is one, Panaeolus foenisecii , which often occurs in lawns and other grasslands a...

Nodulosphaeria derasa

A relative of the previous species in this subforum (i.e. another member of the Phaeosphaeriaceae). I think this must be very common as I collected it yesterday on a dead stem of common ragwort, Jacobaea vulgaris virtually in my garden. Look for dead stems of the plant (fairly easy) and then look fo...

Re: Mayweed fungus

Sorry - I thought I has responded to this but clearly not. Yes quite correct - you have done all the right things - got the "mini-trees" in profile, and the images are quite adequate for the purpose.

Ophiobolus ponticus

Also known as Nodulosphaeria pontica a matter of opinion really. Recently found on dead stem of Centaurea nigra (hardhead) in a local nature reserve in Calderdale which also functions as an overflow area in the floods which that area has suffered in recent years. Ophiobolus ponticus 22.jpg Ophiobolu...

Taphrina padi

Something now starting to show itself on Prunus padus (bird cherry) is the ascomycete fungus which attacks the developing fruits, forming "pocket plums". The host tree is often planted in parks and streets and this fungus can be found in these habitats as well as in the tree's native sites...

Re: Unidentified Panaeolus

Welcome to the site, Roy! And sincere apologies for us not spotting this sooner. You have clearly approached identifying this collection carefully, so if this an early attempt you are clearly working along the right lines. I suspect that Panaeolus fimicola is ideed what you have there. In this genus...

Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Only found because heavy rain in an exposed site forced me to walk back home via an unplanned route. This is separated from what would have been called Trichopeziza mollissima (= Dasyscyphus mollissimus ) by microscopic characters. Not formally named yet - provisionally Trichopeziza limonipilosa in...

Milesina murariae

Milesina rusts all have their aecial stage on Abies (fir) trees, with the later stages on different ferns. Milesina rusts on ferns are not "rusty" as they have colourless spores which appear white under a lens. Last week I was walking past an Asplenium fern-rich wall in suburban Huddersfi...
