Re: How to upload Multiple Images to your posts (Basic Method).

Unfortunately, the problem in uploading multiple image attachments to forum posts is still ongoing. 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: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

Hi John, Thanks for bearing with us re the current "multi image" upload problem. - I'm pleased that you are managing the workaround effectively! And thanks again for your updates on this topic, and your truly excellent photos. Your microscopy techniques of sectioning/staining/photography are as good...

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...

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 ...

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

Hi, my original post with the images of the fungus on Sonchus has vanished! Can anyone help - I'm new to this forum and think I'm doing something wrong... Thanks, John B. (JohnWB) Hi, I've managed to reinstate your original post, so the thread makes sense once again. :D I'm not sure exactly why it ...

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

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. I think you are correct with your suggestion of Miyagia pseudosphaeria . That species is one of two "rust" fungi that attack Sonchus species. - The other being Coleosporium tussilaginis . - But of the two, only M.pseudosphaeria has the dark paraphyses which surround the ...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Monday, 26th February was forecast as being a reasonably fine day with sunny intervals and not too much wind on the tops. So, with strong easterly winds and extremely cold temperatures forecast for several days to follow, I decided on a trip to the Lake District to make the most of the one day weath...

Re: Clear jelly?

Hi, I may be wildly out with this suggestion, but the first of your visible photos (it looks like another has gone AWOL - "The attachment IMGP6148.JPG is no longer available"), shows that the fruitbody clearly has rounded "spine-like" structures in the area towards where it would be attached to subs...

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Hi, Obviously, as Adam has confirmed above, there is something amiss with the website's software at the moment. It looks like you've exhausted most possibilities for trying to upload your photos, but it might just be worthwhile having one more go. About three weeks back, I uploaded multiple images i...
