Re: Neonectria?

Thanks Chris,
I might try ascofrance.
I spent some time reading threads on Nectria after seeing this (some on ascofrance) and Neonectria galligena frequently came up.
Cheers

Steve

Neonectria?

Crossing a bridge, I was at eye level with the buds of a mature Ash tree. I noticed several of the budding tips were coloured red. On closer inspection this was due to a mass of red spheres each with an apical opening just about visible. The fruiting bodies where limited to the buds. I've not seen t...

Re: Wood ID please

Here is an image which hopefully shows similar bark becoming more typical of Oak. You can also see Oak buds if you zoom in.

The style of branching here is much more like Oak than Hazel. It's common for Oak shoots to die which ca...

Re: Fern for ID

I'm with Chris on this one, definitely Lady Fern. Lady Fern has a very even regular structure, everything is balanced. You can see that the frond if divided in pinnae, the pinnae into pinnules and the pinnules have regular teeth down the sides, these will become more pronounced at the fern matures. ...
