Re: White growth on ornamental cherry tree

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your photo is slightly off-focus, so the fine detail isn't really showing. However, this looks like an early stage of the myxomycete, (slime mould), Reticularia lycoperdon . (Until a few years ago, it was known by the Latin name " Enteridium lycoperdon "). It doesn't hav...

Re: Think this is a lichen can you ID please

Hi Nelly, I'm not aware of any lichens that look like this, but I think it could be something like a large patch of dried up Calocera cornea - (Small Stagshorn). Normally bright yellow, and I haven't seen it looking quite as dense as here, but it does go this sort of orangey-brown when it dries up. ...

Re: Fungi id

I'm surprised that no one has yet responded to this.

I don't really "do brackets", but I'll throw a suggestion in.
Probably wrong, but I'd be thinking along the lines of something like old looking Ganoderma australe.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Myriosclerotinia curreyana

Nice find, Mal. - Nice photos too!

Not one I was aware of, but with 369 records on FRDBI looks to be a reasonable chance of finding some at some point.

Certainly plenty of Juncus effusus hereabouts, which seems to be the main host plant named on the records.

Regards,
Mike.

I've merged your second reply, above, (posted as a separate topic), to avoid multiple threads on the same subject).

The problem is this: - If more than one image attachment is added to a post that is being written, and then, before finally uploading that post, • Any further text is then added to the post, or, • Any...

Re: This looks like a very good 'scope deal

Hi all, Perhaps you had intended highlighting this version of the scope Chris? This appears to be the exact same scope, but with an Abbe brightfield condenser. - From what I can see, all the lenses (x4, x10, x40, x100oil, objectives), and a pair each of (x10, x20 wide-field eyepieces), etc. etc. are...

Re: Sarcoscypha austriaca tomentum?

Hi, There is still some debate as to whether the shape of the excipular hairs is a reliable enough characteristic to separate S.austriaca from S.coccinea . Some people are convinced that there are the two species, and some remain convinced that what is being seen is merely minor variations within on...
