Re: Two Guernsey fungi

Hi Mark apologies for getting back somewhat tardily. I'm afraid I can't find anything fungal on the Cyperus ; however the collection on Agapanthus is far more promising. As there appear to be only three conidiomata on the collection I had to be careful - it's easy not to get a preparation right the ...

Re: Any idea?

Hello Bazz

see http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49#p237 Mycology is a difficult study for much of the time - I wonder how you even started to get "any form of ID" on just this evidence . . .

Re: Interesting and small for ID please

I'm sure that's what you found. If you collected any, the smell while drying would be distinctive - given as " a strong smell of fenugreek or curry powder which lasts for years in herbarium material"

Re: Rust for ID please

With respect to Mike those aren't Glechoma leaves which should be more round–kidney-shaped, and - critically - with a cordate base. My money would be on Veronica montana (though "marsh" seems a bit odd - was the habitat open or somewhat wooded?). The pale teliospores (stage III is only stage) would ...

Re: Oak rust?

Google to the rescue https://www.ndrs.org.uk/article.php?id=5011 The spores look echinulate at the rounded end, confirming it as M. hiratsukanum but I might look for some more to check the thickness of the episporium, and the length of the ostiolar cells of the uredinia (whatever THAT means!)

Re: Two Guernsey fungi

Hi Mark if no one else has offered I would be prepared to have a look for you, but wouldn't like to comment on what I can see here - even as to whether fungi are definitely involved. There may be one or two pycnidia on the Agapanthus and there is a Septoria agapanthi : http://www.fieldmycology.net/f...
