Nice image of the setae Roy. Seeing those cap cells I'm thinking that what I thought were veil cells on my "Coprinopsis patouillardii" above are in fact the cells of the cap cuticle which would mean that my specimen is a Parasola - as Marksteer suggested. :oops:

Hi Dave,
I've found similar on neighbour's lawn which I think is a Parasola but I might be wrong. I will try and post photos but maybe too large files and I'm not at all sure how to make them smaller! I don't do microscopy so difficult to be sure of id.

I think you are right Dave. I can't see any veil on your image and the cuticle cells of Parasola are very similar to the veil in patouillardii: also the gill cystidia are very similar. It may well be Parasola keuhneri is very which is close in spore size to patouilladii.

Uromyces muscari if I'm not mistaken, growing on bluebells.

Nice find Adam,

I've not yet managed to find a good specimen of this.

Regards,
Mike.

Plenty of Bluebells around me so will keep an eye out for this Rust.

ps how do I add a 'comment' to all my posts - probably some where on the website!

I think you mean "signature" - it's in your profile. Click on your user name at the top right, and choose profile. It's in there. :geek:

Not absolutely sure of the ID but I suspect this to be Hyalorbilia inflatula.... :?:

No doubt someone will tell me I really need a microscope to be certain .... ;)
