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!

Not sure who this is from but sometimes quoted by the 'Kew Crew'

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 .... ;)

I'm going to try to find Mitrula paludosa on Sunday at Ashdown Forest, I've never seen it before and it's such a beautiful little fungus! :)

I think not so uncommon as records on NBN Gateway suggest just that people haven't looked for it. My guess is that it is widespread particularly around the South Wales coast. Also worth looking for Alexanders and the Rust around old monastery sites - Alexanders was widely grown by monks!

Not sure on correct name but Buczacki et al 2012 list this as Collybia aquosa (Gymnopus aquosa) and uncommon

Going by Funga Nordica 2012 which considers it common. I think all Collybias are now down to those which grow on other fungi and have a sclerotium.

I like your signature!
