but to be honest the more I look at it the more i think it might be some sort of insect galls , but I beleive it might be a coelomycetes and those are quite a challenge!

Couldn’t ID the plant without flower.

I used to save these hoping someone would want to get a hold of the actual specimen to ID the fungus, but I gave up at some point: figured either nobody is interested or nobody knows them well enough (well, I am sure there are people who know them well enough, but they are not part of MO – why bother with amateurs :-(

How about…

anything that could narrow down obs 156251 at all? (Not to sidetrack Andrew’s obs….)

it really depend on what the micro look like

some genera can be identified without the host but quite for quite a few it is a huge plus to have the host too.

Do you have any good references for leaf spots that relies on micro before host?

and more inportantly : micropictures?
