Re: Fungi in the Landscape

More fungi in the Sheffield landscape - none of which I collected to ID as my wife was having an operation - I have recorded many species in the grounds of Sheffield hospitals.

Re: Fungi in the Landscape

Here are some more fungi in the Sheffield area landscape, all taken with my mobile phone. No-one takes any notice of you if you take a picture of anything with a smart phone - but if you were to set up a tripod and a big macro camera on a busy roadside grass verge......... :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

Chromelosporium carneum

This was quite abundant on leaf litter (mostly oak) in a Sheffield wood. It is a lovely pink colour, with rough surfaced spherical spores mostly 5 um diameter, and the conidiophore (synnemata) hyphae about 12 um wide. I'm basing my ID on leaf litter hyphomycetes in Ellis & Ellis "Microfungi on Land ...

Giocladium?

Hi, this was on dead wood in a log pile and reminded us of the lichen Icmadophilia ericiterum which we've seen in the Highlands on peat - but obviously is a hyphomycete. From Ellis and Ellis I got to Giocladium for pinkish slimy spores but these ate just 2 um globose, and not like the species descri...

Rutstroemia sydowiana or Oakleaf Cup

Rutstroemia sydowiana or Oakleaf Cup - I reckon. We’ve found this twice recently, but it needs keen eyes. Spores are kidney shaped so presumably make this an easy one to ID. There are a good few like this and some are very hard to ID like Sclerotinia (which I discovered growing with Botrytis mould -...

Re: Cronartium quercuum?

Nice one Adam, there is a good image on East Glamorgan Wildlife website: "Oak Rust Mystery".
No records of this for SW Yorks on the FRDBI database.

Cronartium quercuum?

Hi, This was quite common on cupules of sessile oak in a Sheffield woodland. The spores are around 10 x 8 um. I don't have much info on the various stages of the only rust I can find information on re oak ie Cronartium quercuum. Google images doesn't help. There is one record from Wales 1999 of C. q...
