Whilst walking my dog Basil, I was surprised to find how many species of fungi there were, in such close proximity to my house!
Toothed Crust (Basidioradulum radula).
3.1-3. Frozen Witches' Butter (Exidia glandulosa).
4-6: Scarlet Elfcups (Sarcoscypha austriaca).
Woodwart (Hypoxylon multiforme).
The broken perithicia (pores), are clearly visible, through which the ascospores escape.
Chaetospaerella phaeostroma an ascomycota, commonly found in broadleaved woodland, including Ilex. A big thanks goes out to Nick Aplin for his identification.
Orange Cups insitu.
Orange cups viewed with a microscope (above and below).
I am waiting for an identification. I will update you when I have received one.
Nettle Rash (Leptosphaeria acuta).
The above three are Blushing Bracket (Daedaleopsis confragosa).
Nick Aplin has examined these and give a positive identification of Rosellinia aquila, a carbonaceous Pyrenomycetes.
You can see in the photograph above, the broken perithecia.
The above three photographs of the Rosellinia were taken under a microscope.
Didymella lutea. Thank you to Nick Aplin for identifying them.
