Whilst walking my dog Basil, I was surprised to find how many species of fungi there were, in such close proximity to my house!

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.
