Two Guernsey fungi

Post by markwilson » Sun Sep 03, 2017 3:57 pm

The first on Cyperus longus - the only suspect I can find is Puccinia romagnoliana in http://bladmineerders.nl/parasites/fung ... agnoliana/

The second is on

fungi006.jpg
Agapanthus for which I can find no suitable candidate

I have specimens but I cannot do the microscopy

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark
if no one else has offered I would be prepared to have a look for you, but wouldn't like to comment on what I can see here - even as to whether fungi are definitely involved. There may be one or two pycnidia on the Agapanthus and there is a Septoria agapanthi: http://www.fieldmycology.net/frdbi/FRDB ... +agapanthi but as I say microscopy is essential here.

cheers
Chris

As long as they are lightly pressed and 100% dry - do you have my address?

Hi Chris - I posted them yesterday

The one on Cyperus may have dried out too much but I might be able to get another specimen - I have not been able to post extra photos - I'm having probels reducing the file size - but will sort out somehow

Regards

Mark
