Re: ID request Reddening Polypore

I did not find gloeocystidia until I re-examined the specimen after your identification. Then I found a single one with no granules in it so might not have recognised it as a gloeocystidium. Had I known my specimen had them I just might have got it by keying in R&M. Thank you both my friends for all...

Re: ID request Reddening Polypore

Many thanks Mike and Adam. That ticks every box when I check mine against the description in R&M. I will go back to try to see where I went wrong
Yours aye

ID request Reddening Polypore

Reddening Polypore - help with id please It grew as a small cluster out of the edge of a large beech stump in Skipton hospital grounds. When dry it looked all white but with hydration colours developed. The edge is pale and the slightly zonate top is gingery brown. The cap surface is glabrous and co...

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

Thank you Andreas, I did originally measure dry material but last week was able to go to the same woodland. In the same place we found fresh material. The asci in it measured the same as those in the paper this time. I searched diligently again for crozier clamps and again found nothing like any kin...

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.
