Re: Unknown jelly fungus

Your first two microscope images show basidia with long sterigmata with spores. These are typical of jelly fungi and I would start with Tremella species. Not having much woodland here, I don't recognise it.

Re: Moss Fungus ...

The only Galerina I can think of with such distant gills is Galerina calyptrata. It has a fleshy umbo and obvious caulocystidia. I doubt you will get any further without microscopy though.

Re: Urocystis violae

:) Thanks for the confirmation Chris - new Dorset fungal records seem to be a by-product of my increasing fascination with plant galls! I gave up on the NBN a long time ago for distribution details.......... Nice record, Jenny. I also barely look at NBN - it was better before the revamp. Regards, C...

Hi Jenny

Not the Chris you were hoping for :shock:

Termorshuizen and Swertz don't mention pedicels either. I wonder if your spores are germinating?
