Re: Puccinia chaerophyllii on Anthriscus sylvestris?

Thanks Chris - at least I was right that they're pedicels! Might you have contact details for Dr. Helfer?

Re: Puccinia chaerophyllii on Anthriscus sylvestris?

Thanks for the reply and suggestion Chris - there doesn't seem another possibility on this host so perhaps that's the explanation

Re: Tranzschelia discolor and T pruni-spinosae?

Hi Chris - great collection of images as always!

In your images the lower cells all appear verrucose despite the colour variation. I'd based my Tranzschelia discolor identification on the +/- smooth lower cell but is this not sufficient to separate them?

Re: Phragmidium tuberculatum not mucronatum?

Many thanks for the reply Chris and sorry for my delay but I didn't get a reply notification. I was using Bladmineerders but your link gives more information and apiculus length range for both - though I'm now wondering if both my specimens might have been P. tuberculatum ! Jury undecided, will have...

Phragmidium tuberculatum not mucronatum?

Having recorded Phragmidium mucronatum on Rosa canina agg I've been searching all the Rosa rugosa I've come across in the hope of finding Phragmidium tuberculatum and getting a better concept of the difference between the two.......... :? The micrographs are from R. rugosa and a high proportion of s...

Re: Microscope camera

Hello Melanie, I read your posts with interest and am very tempted by the AmScope MU500-CK 5MP USB Microscope Camera. As you've been using it for the last year I'd be interested in any further comments on it, and (million dollar question) would it also capture good quality still macro images from my...
