Re: The Clough House Mill Saga

Quick update before Part Three. I mentioned that the Actinosporella anamorph of the aquatic discomycete Miladina lecithina can get much bigger. Here is a more typical one with longer arms (the distance between the lowest one and the right hand one is almost 350µm.): Miladina lecithina 04.jpg By a ha...

Re: Claret stiped club fungus

Hi
Looks like the very young growth of Ganoderma lucidum - compare with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... dum-01.jpg
This is the much-vaunted lingzhi mushroom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingzhi_mushroom

The Clough House Mill Saga

A recent collection of a foam sample from a Yorkshire stream has proved extremely interesting. This is Part One of the tale. The collection site lies in West Yorkshire above Slaithwaite. It is on the site of a former (19th century) woollen mill, now completely gone. Clough House Mill was owned by Ed...

Re: Rust on Ransoms

Hi Adam not the greatest of shots but one can clearly see the white margins of "aecidioid" aecia. This means it has to be Puccinia sessilis (alternating with the grass Phalaris arundinacea ). See http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=77&hilit=caeomoid for notes on the other Allium ursinum rust...

Re: White growth on ornamental cherry tree

Mike is absolutely correct Compare with for example http://champyves.pagesperso-orange.fr/champignons/autres/Myxo/Enteridium_lycoperdon7.jpg Spring is the usual time for this slime mould to appear - sometimes it will "fruit" on worked wood, window sills etc. When it disappears there will have been n...

Re: A rare? zygomycete on dung

Nobert Heine has kindly got back to me from Germany. He tells me he has been studying dung fungi for 20 years, and has recorded over 300 species, but has never come across Coemansia erecta. So I think it has to be considered rare . . .

Interesting Chris
not being a lichenologist I wasn't (to my shame) aware how frequent the host is: https://species.nbnatlas.org/species/NBNSYS0000018579 . . . . I shall keep an eye out for these Vouauxiella spp. (once I've learnt to recognise the Lecanora :oops: )

Re: A rare? zygomycete on dung

Thanks for the kind comments. Enrique Rubio says it appears to be unrecorded in Spain, and Michel Delpont doesn't know it from France either, although it has occurred there - the type location appears to have been from the Paris area - see:
