Thanks Chris

My specimen does appear to match with the Phleogena faginea photo on the website. Lovely.

Interesting and small for ID please

Found on a fallen tree trunk, not sure which, though probably Beech. About 3 - 5mm tall The club nature and pitted cap are the remarkable features and for me, that ruled out slime mould (note the immature fruits in particular). Too small to see gills/pores, though it was actually quite robust when h...

Coleosporium tussilaginis

Lucky me ..... besides finding it on Coltsfoot leaves, now also on Red Bartsia and Eyebright. Coleosporium tussilaginis on Odontites, Euphrasia and previously on Tussilago. Interested to know why it colonises these three plants .... or are there more??

Rust on Peony

Back in 2013, Chris Yeates identified the rust I found on one of the Peonies in my garden as Cronartium flaccidum at stage II, but then this year I saw this development. Stage III perhaps?

What does stage I look like?

Re: Blisters/pustules on Hawkweed

Thanks Chris

I had ruled out insect activity, finding no larvae when opening the pustules and having studied the descriptions of likely galls in Redfern & Shirley's reference book.

Very useful & interesting information on the rust. I will go with Pustula tragopogonis.

Thanks again.
