Myriosclerotinia curreyana

Post by Flaxton » Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:06 pm

I posted this elsewhere but thought it would be worth adding it here as well.
Small group of Peziza lookalikes growing in a bog(8mm across) At first I thought they were growing on a rotting and ridged grass stem of some sort but it turned out to be a sclerotia that they were attached to. The inside of the sclerotia was a nice pretty pink helping to confirm the id.

Very interesting image - just found out what a sclerotium is too!
The more I see of fungi the more intersting they seem to be.

Thanks for posting, nice crisp and interesting images.

Nice find, Mal. - Nice photos too!

Not one I was aware of, but with 369 records on FRDBI looks to be a reasonable chance of finding some at some point.

Certainly plenty of Juncus effusus hereabouts, which seems to be the main host plant named on the records.

Regards,
Mike.

As you say Mike quite a few records, not many in Yorkshire though. Once you know it the features which are very distinctive it's worth looking out for. I have been to that particular site quite a lot and never seen it before so not a regular fruiter there.
