Re: Rutola graminis

Re: Fungus on Sonchus.asper - help to ID needed please

The key feature is the ring of dark brown paraphyses, with practice and with a x10 lens this feature can be recognised in the field. Miyagia pseudosphaeria 0b.jpg The only other rust ...

This looks like a very good 'scope deal
