Re: Testing the new forum, is this a Scutellinia

Hi John, Good to have you on board. I think that you have probably answered your own question in that it is probably a Scutellinia (but would need microscopy to be certain of species). Mal, (Flaxton) has also registered, and might be able to offer more expert opinions on such things! Regards, Mike.

Re: Literature & resources for rusts and smuts

Probably the most comprehensive book currently available, (and mentioned above), is "British Rust Fungi" by Wilson & Henderson. Originally published in 1966, but now available in paperback form as a 2011 reprint. Ellis & Ellis "Microfungi on Land Plants", (also mentioned above), does include all gen...

Re: Puccinia caricina var, ribesii-pendulae on Pendulous Sedge

Hi Mike - very common rust on Carex pendula but extremely rare on the alternate host Ribes Thanks rustbucket. My thoughts that it might possibly have been a good find, were because I'd taken the Wilson/Henderson comment to mean that the production of Teleutospores on Carex pendula were infrequent. ...

Not a bad shot at all Adam! - And at least you're finding things with gills!
The only things I've seen with gills recently, are the small trout in Sunnyhurst Brook!

Re: Pink Purslane

Nice find (and photo), Joan.

Now that you have a local site for Pink Purslane, you will have to look to see if you can find the rust fungus Puccinia arenariae, which has been recorded on them.

Regards,
Mike.

OK - it was actually the fungus of a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just trying to kick-start more input to the forum. ;)

Re: Phragmidium tuberculatum or P. mucronatum?

Hi Jenny, As you say, Chris’s opinions would be invaluable. For what it’s worth, I think you have the aecidial stage – (I), of which Wilson/Henderson say: - Phragmidium mucronatum Aecidia caeomoid, on branches and petioles, hypophyllous on the leaf veins, and on the fruits, often confluent on branch...

Re: Rust on borage

Just throwing Golovinomyces cynoglossi into the mix as a possibility - but you'll need to get it under the microscope Adam. ;) See:- http://www.fieldmycology.net/FRDBI/FRDBIrecord.asp?strAssoc=Borago+officinalis&strName=Golovinomyces+cynoglossi Also, some others that have been found on Borage:- http...
