Kretzschmaria deusta at Pont Felin Gat

I was baffled as to the identity of this prominent black crust with associated white bits on a Sycamore near Pont Felin Gat, but browsing through the Carmarthenshire Fungi Blog (which I don't read nearly as often as I should!) gave the unwelcome answer.

More positive were the two Adoxa rusts, IDed for Barry Stewart and me by Nigel, and a very large colony of the lichen Sticta sylvatica.

  1. Splendid Nigel --- Brittle Cinder Fungus is the K deusta and, as Colin says (March Blog), a dangerous pathogen as this has a wide host range and causes brittle fractures. Exceptional among the ascos as it may grow on the central wood of very large trees.
