Macro Moments Challenge: Week 6 – Galls

Macro Moments

Plant Galls on Red Campion – Puccinia arenariae

The fungi plant galls, P. arenariae, and P. behennis  look very much alike to the naked eye, but with a little practice you can split these two species in the field. The spores of P behennis are round so do not hold together and can easily be knocked out of the “pustules” with a pin or small stick. P arenariae with its long tailed spores holds together and cannot be knocked out.

Camera details can be brought up by holding cursor over image.

    1. Plant Galls, an intriguing, and fascinating subject. to study, not for me though, to many causes, and lack of tools to facilitate/determine the culprit . The later, as you probably already know, covers all manner of Arthropoda, Fungi, Bacteria, Viruses and Acari.. As to what pathogens ether might carry and the problems they cause ,is a science in its own right. No, I’ll stick to photographing them, and if there is a Scientist out there who can identify any gall I put up I’ll be most thankful.

      Wishing you all the best and big THANK YOU for following my blog.

      1. Yes, gall is an important subject of research. I had studied about gall. but, it was not my research topic. This photo of gall is so prominent and distinct that it can easily catch the eyes of any Gall-researcher.
        Welcome and pleased to meet you.
