Black tar spot fungus on Sycamore tree
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
apparently the more Tar spots on the leaf, the less pollutants are in the air.
(Dave said that you probably already know this already)
I found some fallen leaves showing this fungus yesterday, while checking out one of the locations I had in mind for later in the course.
The fungus gets the spores from the fallen leaf litter .S o it keeps being passed on year on year .
I'm a student so be gentle.
