Description

I first recorded this powdery mildew on Photinia in hedges in Christchurch back in 2008 as Podosphaera leucotricha, but sequencing of an Otago collection by MPI shows it to be P. clandestina. Young growth in the sun is quite badly affected.

Description

Telial stage present. Rust and smut co-infecting same plants.
Strictly probably Puccinia coronata var. avenae f.sp. graminicola.

In my opinion it isn't really possible to identify the orange stage (uredinia) on grasses as P. coronata. It requires the presence of the dark brown telial stage and confirmation of the characteristic 'crown' of the telial stage. Without that it's just a best guess (i.e. most/all current iNat records). Avena (fatua and others) supports multiple rusts (e.g. P. graminis) and the aecial stage on Rhamnus is now considered to be a different species.

Description

This is an undescribed species that is closely related to A. drummondii from Western Australia (according to sequence data). It is not Amanita pekeioides, even though it looks like it. The two species are clearly in the same section of Amanita but are otherwise not closely related. All records of 'A. pekeoides' on iNat could be either species. The two are easily distingusihed microscopically because this species has clearly differentiated cheilocystidia (second photo) and A. pekeoides does not.

I've been watching this tree slowly die for several months. The exuding sap ferments with a strong smell of alcohol.
