Re: Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

Hi Mike I am writing this to you and all others who are in Fungus UK community. Many thanks for giving us all this remarkable paper. I have read the first part carefully, the part dealing with the two Hymenoscyphus species we are discussing. And I have looked for croziers in our specimens. First I h...

Re: Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

Many thanks Paul and Andreas. I have searched and searched but found nothing but normal septa at the bases of the asci. Should I be looking for croziers at the bases of young asci or mature asci or anywhere else, please?

Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

This fungus we found in abundance in leaf litter under ash, beech and oak with the odd Scots pine nearby. In one part of the wood it seemed to be everywhere we trod. The fruitbodies were up to 6 mm in diameter, on stalks that were black at the very base where they were attached to the black covering...

Re: ? (ID Request) - Yellow chunky asco a bit like a stubby Cudoniella

Many thanks for this, Andreas, I shall know where I should look again. You can see I am pretty incompetent at the keying out of ascos, so I am grateful for your help.

Oval discs of ‘bad skin’ on dead stems of Bluebells

These areas of spotty greyish skin looked, with the magnifying glass, to be made up of tiny tufts of hair, shown here at different magnifications with dissecting microscope. 01 15 on Bluebell (2).jpg 02 15 on Bluebell (3).jpg 03 15 on Bluebell (4).jpg Under the compound microscope with x 10 objectiv...

? (ID Request) - Yellow chunky asco a bit like a stubby Cudoniella

It was very bright yellow in the woods, the colour of Bisporella citrina. The pictures here do not do justice to it. The one with dissecting microscope is nearest the correct colour. The biggest fruitbodies were 4.5 mm in diameter, growing on conifer wood. 1 Yellow asco gv 1.jpg 1 Yellow asco gv 2.j...

Re: Tiny pale hairy asco on wood

Thank you very much indeed Andreas. It is lovely to have found it and much more lovely to have your id. I shall treasure it and look up the fungus right away. Thank you too for textura prismatica.

Tiny pale hairy asco on wood

Tiny pale asco on soaking b-l stick This tiny pale asco was clustered on the other end of the stick with the tiny white balls on stalks identified by Chris as Bulbillomyces farinosus after my recent post. It was almost barrel shaped and made me think of a gooseberry with the top cut off. It was hair...

Re: Tiny white blobs on bare wood

Thank you Dave but can it really be that? It seemed so much too definite in structure and although not measured the 'spores' seemed tiny. I must say I have never examined Ceratiomyxa fructulosa but always done the id in the field.

Tiny white blobs on bare wood

Is this a fungus? In the woods this has the form of tiny knobbly white spots about 0.3-0.5 mm diameter on bare wood. I thought it resembled Bactridium flavum. On examination it is made up of these elongated structures arising more or less from a point, each with an even covering of smooth lumps. The...
