Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

. . . .If the thread opener could answer the question, wether the fungus was hard like wood (Phellinus pomaceus) or wether it was softer, pressable and somewhat juicy (Inonotus) best regards, Andreas Yes, upon looking closer one can see that the cap surface of the fungus in the original post has be...

Hi Andreas

. . . . Sorry for the poor condition of the fungus and the poor microscopic images. . . .
No need to apologise Mike - congratulations on finding one of the few mushrooms currently in parched Britain ;)

cheers

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...
