Galls on what I think is a type of poplar. I know that Taphrina populina makes bulge galls on poplar, but a lot of the pictures online look more severe than the ones I saw and photographed.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Gall on Poplar

Assuming that this is on nigra or one of its hybrids I think it is Taphrina populina.

I'll have to look up how to

I'll have to look up how to identify poplars and go and have another gander at the tree. Luckily it is huge and not that far from my house.
