Crust Fungus

A white crust fungus with pores, probably a Schizopora sp, possibly Schizopora flavipora or Schizopora paradoxa.

I took this specimen:

And it yielded the following spores (magnification x600, field width about 86um):

These are about 4 x 3um which is at the lower end of the ranges most frequently given for S. flavipora and S. paradoxa.

First photo and specimen taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2014-02-11.
