This is Puccinia urticata -

This is Puccinia urticata - you can see the first cluster-cups.

Puccinia urticata

Like Mydaea says - it's clear to see.
See my pretty typical Dasineura urticae here
and my pretty thorough Clustercup treatment here
I think the picture is slightly untypical as it appears to be cleanly on a leaf vein but the cups are quite visible.
There is a possibility that BOTH organisms are present - see but there is no direct evidence.

Which ever way the id goes

I am trying to get all UK plant gall postings in one place


This will hopefully increase the "visibility" to people interested in plant galls and increase identifcation/confirmation rates

There are currently over 550 records collected

Could you please tag any plant gall records "plant gall" or "plant gall causer" - without speech marks

Thanks in anticipation - apologies if you get multiple requests as I am trawling through past records.

If you feel reasonably confident in your id why not go to "other observations and confirm them - Following Derek's advice - if you go here to get to the next record for the same species just go to the top left and click next
