Thanks for your help

Hi guys

Thanks for your help with this - I'm new to this and am struggling to find it on Mycokey and http://www.abfg.org/Puccinia%20clintonii.php

It was about 6-7 cms across, but there was a clump of them further round the tree stump which were each a lot smaller and looked like they had something else growing on them... as shown on newly attached 2nd photo.
