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?

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 ...

Trichium?

Hi,
This yellow myxo was on very rotted pine. I only found the spores - no capillitium or fruiting bodies. The spores look interesting but I can't find a good match in my small Myxo book. Is this a Trichium?

Re: Nectriopsis rexiana?

Many thanks Mike,
I'm finding large numbers of hyphomycetous "crusts" on all kinds of dead wood which are just too much to tackle (I still record them with brief descriptive notes), so it's nice to get them on more specific substrates like myxos. Many thanks for the PDFs too!
Cheers,
Steve
