Our Bing search result is very good (1st page for UK fungi) but Google is still not listing us very well (3rd page for Uk fungi). As...

Re: Microfungus on Chamerion? (Rosebay Willowherb)

Thanks for confirmation, Chris. The single record in Pembs, 1987, was yours! P.epilobii is not recorded here.

Rusts from dunes

Rust on Salix in willow carr
