Re: Fungi or Gall

Hi Nelly, I think this is what is generally known as a "burr". (Americans would call it a "burl"). They are produced as a result of some sort of injury or stress to the tree causing localised & greatly increased cell division, producing these deformed growths. They can, I believe, be triggered by ba...

Re: White ‘finger’ fungus on compost heap, Perthshire

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Not stinkhorns. (If they were, you would easily be able to see the "eggs" from which they would be growing.

I suspect that whatever they are, they have taken on a somewhat atypical growth due to the conditions in which they find themselves.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: White growth on ornamental cherry tree

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your photo is slightly off-focus, so the fine detail isn't really showing. However, this looks like an early stage of the myxomycete, (slime mould), Reticularia lycoperdon . (Until a few years ago, it was known by the Latin name " Enteridium lycoperdon "). It doesn't hav...

Re: Think this is a lichen can you ID please

Hi Nelly, I'm not aware of any lichens that look like this, but I think it could be something like a large patch of dried up Calocera cornea - (Small Stagshorn). Normally bright yellow, and I haven't seen it looking quite as dense as here, but it does go this sort of orangey-brown when it dries up. ...

Re: Fungi id

I'm surprised that no one has yet responded to this.

I don't really "do brackets", but I'll throw a suggestion in.
Probably wrong, but I'd be thinking along the lines of something like old looking Ganoderma australe.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Myriosclerotinia curreyana

Nice find, Mal. - Nice photos too!

Not one I was aware of, but with 369 records on FRDBI looks to be a reasonable chance of finding some at some point.

Certainly plenty of Juncus effusus hereabouts, which seems to be the main host plant named on the records.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: How to upload Multiple Images to your posts (Basic Method).

Unfortunately, the problem in uploading multiple image attachments to forum posts is still ongoing. The problem is this: - If more than one image attachment is added to a post that is being written, and then, before finally uploading that post, • Any further text is then added to the post, or, • Any...
