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...

Re: Trichium?

Hi John, Here's another what I'm more certain is a Myxo - on a pile of woodchips at our allotments - I didn't need to go to Specsavers to spot it! I reckon people passing by thought it actually was dog's vomit, as it was untouched. Looking at Google Images for "slime molds on woodchip" gave quite a ...
