Marsh pennywort fungus

Any reason why this is not Septoria hydrocotyles - it does not show etiolation of the leaf stalk shown in some photos - West Somerset.

Gorse cramp ball

I think this is Daldinia fissa on burnt Ulex (prob U europaea) c 2cm across - 2nd picture shows "attachment" scar. Does anyone know how common this is, or is the NBN map about right. Is anything being done to conserve as a number of "conservation" organisations no longer burn moorland? Found in West...

Vinca fungi

I am not sure about this but I think this may be Puccinia vincae being parasitised by Tuberculina sbrozzii. More photos at https://www.ispotnature.org/communities ... for-2-here. If so according to NBN map both new for S Somerset (VC5). Any ideas Thanks

Arum fungus

Can anyone help with this. For a long time I have thought these spots were Puccinia sessilis - but they do not match many of the published photographs. The unusual dark spotting is the repouse form and not fungal see https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/view/observation/609980/more...

Fungus on Ground Ivy

I am presuming this is fungal on Glechoma hederacea (Ground Ivy) West Somerset. In Bladmineerders only Ramularia glechomatis is given does not look quite like it.
