AW: BRYONET: [Fwd: Re: moss microcosms


Dear Maaike,
the obscure objects in question are all spores of different imperfect fungi. The
first picture may be of a spore of a species of Pithomyces sp. or Drechslera
sp.; the second and third show typical muricate spores of Alternaria spp.; the
forth shows a macroconidium of a Fusarium sp. and the fifth looks a bid like
Fusariella sp, but might also be of an Ascomycete. Full indentification could be
achieved by investing cultures of the different fungi. I would be very
interested in your whole identification-list!
Best wishes!
