Re: Myriosclerotinia curreyana

Very interesting image - just found out what a sclerotium is too!
The more I see of fungi the more intersting they seem to be.

Thanks for posting, nice crisp and interesting images.

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Hi again, I've a few more images from some 8µ and 5µ slides this time, just finished them yesterday... The first image may be a germinating spore with emergent hypha? I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out here, I know virtually nothing about fungi, but certainly plan to study them more as I...

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Hi all, I've cut and mounted some thinner sections of 5µ (the earlier images are of 8µ sections) and changed the staining to try to make finer details more visible. Here are a few views of what I think are hyphae having entered the unfortunate Sonchus.arvensis via stomata. The hypha internal image s...

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Many thanks Mike, I'll try the workaround. Thanks also for the book-list - I'm as you say certain to see fungi in and on plants, and now I see how interesting they are and what good slides they make I'll certainly be including infected-tissue in my slides! A very interesting area indeed - great to f...

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Hi again, I ordered this book earlier today, I'm hoping it'll be a good resource for my future encounters with plant-fungi. They (fungal-infected plant tissues) make excellent slides and I'm certainly going to look for more on British wildflowers that I collect. This is the book - does anyone know i...

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Thanks chaps, I tried to include more images but every time I added an attachment (image), inline or not, it's addition seemed to cause an earlier image to be 'no longer available' when I checked the preview prior to posting. Perhaps as this is my first-ever post to this nice forum? I'll try to post...

Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Hi, I'm a new member and this is my first post. I live in Cumbria, UK. URK.... just realised I labelled this topic with Sonchus.asper - my-stupidity! This post actually deals with Sonchus.arvensis! Sorry folks. All images are from Sonchus.arvensis NOT S.asper..... I study British wildflowers as my h...
