Re: Fungi in compost

Hi Nelly, Does your compost contain organic "manure"? I'm still tempted to think that you might have one of the very tiny inkcaps. I'm by no means suggesting this ( Coprinopsis stercorea ) is the species you have, but does this look more like your fungus? http://www.first-nature.com/fungi/coprinopsi...

Re: Unidentified mushroom near Beech

Hi, You are able to view the photos at full size ? - I've tried clicking on all three thumbnails and just get a small black box with a white X inside. Re the fungus - I think my suggestion might have been a little too quick! - A.porphyria is generally associated with pines. Your fungus also has the ...

Re: Unidentified mushroom near Beech

Hi dubrae, and welcome to the forum. Your photos aren't showing at all when clicked on - so I can only see the thumbnails. From those small pics, I'd say you might have something like a young Amanita porphyria - Grey Veiled Amanita - but by no means certain. Others might have a more definite opinion...

Re: Keep an eye on Ramsons

Hi Ken, That's not Choke - in terms of Choke being Epichloë species. Definitely a rust - so, being caeomoid, probably Melampsora allii-fragilis or Melampsora allii-populina . You're gonna have to capitulate and dust the cobwebs off that microscope. :D :D :D :oops: :P ;) Regards, Mike.

Re: Small white asco on oak leaf

Hi John,

Maybe Cudoniella clavus var grandis?

Re: Fungi in compost

I'm tempted to think it might have been one of the very tiny inkcaps that sometimes appear on compost/manure/dead herbaceous material, etc. etc.
Some of those are extremely small and very short lived.

But - without more detailed photos - just a guess. ;)

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Keep an eye on Ramsons

Hi Chris, - great to see you on the forum. Superb photos as usual - and, for the first time, one of your excellent composite "plates" can be viewed at screen filling size! Plenty of Ramsons about - although not much Crack Willow around here unfortunately! - But will still be keeping my eyes open for...

Re: Puccinia obscura?

Hi, I’m by no means an expert, but I’m always trying to learn, and am always happy to be corrected. From the info available, my thoughts would be: - If you are certain that your calibration is correct, then the sizes you give are on the large side for P.obscura (with reference to Wilson & Henderson ...

Re: Pink Purslane

Hi Ken, Obviously, I haven't actually seen it on C.sibirica , but from Wilson & Henderson, I think it would be more defined, and more chocolate-brown in colour. (With definite sori on the undersides of the leaves). Might be worth sending the photo to Chris, and asking his opinions just in case? Rega...
