Descripción

Distributed from herb. GZU as exsiccatum Mycotheca Graecensis no. 35, see
https://www.zobodat.at/pdf/fritschiana_4_0001-0011.pdf

Report of my collection done on 9th of November in 1994 at very same place, where i had found Stamnaria americana the first time on 3rd of February 1994. This collection had been distributed from herb. GZU in 1995 to other institutions.

My first sampling in February had been destroyed, as i left horsetail shoots full of ascomata within a plastic bag. Mould fungi had done much damage to ascocarps, thus i threw away my first collection. Having learned, never to leave samples in such bags.

Unfortunately i had no camera that time to take photos, could just add newly taken ones at same place.

Large, dense population, shoots neither neither unusually high or wide in size. On sandy bank of river Mur, the previous year flooded by high water.

Occurrence of the fungus the most likely caused by intentional infection with material from another source farther south, where the horsetail and fungus had been largely devasted in 1995. So the northernmost occurrence of the fungus in Styria known to me, had been caused 1, to save the species in the region, 2, to prove chances of intentional infection. I didn't note the year and exact time when i infected this population of Equisetum hyemale, sorry.

Apparently hard to find in the surrounding of my home townlet Frohnleiten. At last i found this example which suffered of drought, as it's shadowing trees might have been cut?, and it had not rained or snowed enough for several weeks.

Julio 25, 1976

Descripción

Report of collection done by late Prof. Josef Poelt from University Graz, together with R. Moberg on 25.07.1976 at Samnaun Mountains, Noth Tyrol, Austrian Alps.
They found and collected plenty of ascomycete fruitbodies situated at dead remains of Equisetum variegatum at ca. 1950 m altitude. Prof. J. Poelt identified these as "Stamnaria equiseti var."
In course of my master thesis (begun 1994) i found these to be quite different from Stamnaria persoonii, syn. S. equiseti, and other species of the genus, hence chose the provisional, never published name "Stamnaria poeltii".
So this sample from 1976 shall serve as holotype of the species in my opinion. A further reason to honour J. Poelt is, that he did his last excursion together with me, just 5 days before his passing due to heart attack on 03.06.1995.
While this excursion to upper Styria, i found and collected fungi on Equisetum variegatum, which seem to represent the same species S. poeltii.

Descripción

Dense growth of horsetail close to streamlet Kleintalbach, west of Übelbach. It is host to parasitic ascomycete Stamnaria americana. For many years, i could only find the asexual stage there and in vicinity, reproducing by mitotic Titaeospora conidia, but in autumn 2016 the fungus had grown sexual ascocarps. I do not know the reason for this change, liked to know what had happened.

Descripción

Sexual ascocarps, so called apothecia growing parasitically on Equisetum hyemale (ssp. hyemale).
First find of generative propagational stage = Teleomorph, of this fungus at this location after 20 ys of controlling, before that i could solely find the asexual stage = Anamorph, so called Titaeospora [equiseti] there.
Explanation: asexual reproductive stage named "Titaeospora equiseti" in strict sense (so far used at all) shall belong !either! to Stamnaria persoonii (in strict sense), !or! to St. mougeotii (named by me, but never pulished). T. equiseti has formally been synonymized with St. persoonii, but this is not necessarily correct.
Since that, this type of mitotic conidia is better named just Titaeospora without further specification.

? Old but new report ? of this parasitical ascomycet from this area in Kleintalgraben.
I guess to have controlled infected horsetail populations between Übelbach and this location at least 10 maybe 20 times to find ascocarps during past 20 years.
As result i solely found the asexual Titaeospora stage, looking quite similar, but without those yellow fruitbodies called apothecia. Thus i might have bet these would never occur there, got no explanation why the fungus could change to sexual reproduction now. Funny but true, i always was sure this should be Stamnaria americana, speculating the fungal population could miss the afforded crossing type, or had lost ability of sexual reproduction. When arriving there for documentation of the "asexual" type i was truly irritated but as well delighted by this unexpected change!

Under trees at left bank of river Mur, infected by parasitic ascomycete Stamnaria americana, which is indigenous in middle Styria.
The host plant, and it's specialized, co-evoluted fungus could survive along the river and some contributing creeks, despite river Mur is heavily regulated and dammed for several power stations.

Solely two, nearby invisible cormorants remained at beech trees close to steep bank of river Mur. All branches and twigs of both resting trees are bright white from the birds' constant droppings.
As fishermen are allowed to repell and i think to shoot cormorants, some birds left the beeches, had no chance to take photos of flying birds.

Hard to see, but two beech trees at steep bank of river Mur, white from excrements of Great Cormorants, which flew away, as they are repelled and shot by fishermen. Could not focuse better in order to avoid direct light from ahead. The beeches' bark should be moderate grey, but both trees are bright white covered here.

My first find of this rather rare ascomycet outside of Styria.
It happened accidentially when walking along a rivulet in Pfäffikon, Switzerland. Present in two, rather small patches of host Equisetum hyemale.

An unexpected find with remarkable large rosettes, hence i suspected these might represent the alien Saxifraga longifolia, but this seems to be very unlikely to me.

Compared to my hand this rosette's diameter had been about 18 cm, quite large for S. hostii.

For that reason i added the report of it's feeding fern. No, i did not want to take a photo of the tiny leaf hopper, just happened occasionally.

As commented later on, my identification is temptative, far from being confirmed by essential visible characters. I hope to get there soon for taking individual cicadas and usable photos of.

Certainly one of the most vigorous and best shaped Hard Shield Fern i do know in my home region.
The large fronds are clearly bipinnate, largest forwards directed pinnulae beside leaf midrib are partially pinnate, so this fern's leaves are the same dissected as with large Polystichum setiferum, it's ancestor.
Still the fronds are leathery stiff, with glossy upper side, more bright to slightly yellowish green. Leaf stipe shorter than with P. setiferum, lowest pinnae relatively long, but clearly shorter than longest ones. It's rather bright to yellowish green upper surface is uncommon with P. aculeatum, might be due to growth condition, sunny from east side.
See as well at flickr album Polystichum aculeatum "forma parangulare".

Found it feeding on cone and needles of Pinus parviflora bonsai said to be about 100 years old. The bonsai tree shall have been grown in Japan, shipped to Netherlands and was planted in April at Burg Rabenstein for the exhibition named "Japaneum".
The moth larvae won't threaten the small tree, but i doubt it got propper growth conditions at the small yard. I had seen such caterpillars several times feeding on 5 needle pine cones, never was aware of it's moth species.

May not be sure at last, but do suppose we got the invading Eastern Gray Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis here. There are lots in our yard. Those nasty thieves took hundreds of nearby ripe apricot fruits, Prunus armeniaca, threw down the flesh, and ate the kernels. The squirrels behaved like addicted junkies, no way to keep them off of the apricots. They indeed had joy when i hunted them below the orchard trees, or even climbed up.
First i thought these were native S. vulgaris, but they do appear larger, having no ear-brush.
No, didn't kill this one, found it dead in the orchard and deponed at compost heap, looked quite different a few days after.

Observed (and fend off) when meeting my student colleague after round 21 years in Graz. We studied there at Karl-Franzens Uni. and had a very good time then. So i took photos of the blood hunting insect, and told her, that i would add here at iNat.
I will tell about and hope she will add some observations from Ohio where living with her family.
