Description

See the bee in the center of the picture? There is a hole in the ground above this bee. These bees fly around and disappear into the holes. The bee is heading under the leaves, and I think a hole is under there. I think these bees may be the same ones that visit the Texas dandelion.

I've wanted to find this one for a while. I doubt much can be gleaned from my amateur microscopy, but I believe I found a condiophore and some hyphal bodies. The fungus has spread throughout the entire body, even emerging from the face between the antennae. It also seems that the fungus has "sewn" the body to the leaf with strands of hyphae, as shown in picture 9.

Brown-head Stubble Lichen (Chaenotheca brunneola)

Description

Stalks average ~90 μm diameter, heads ~215 μm.
Distinguishing features from this key:

  • Brown hymenium
  • Pruina not always conspicuous, but white when present
  • Thallus growing from under the surface of wood
  • Excipulum underdeveloped, maybe visible occasionally in the last picture
  • Spores 3.5-4.5 µm (ascospores in 11th picture I think, range is close given the difficulty measuring)

Looks like I caught a diverse array of conidia as well.

Since I couldn't identify the phycobiont, I could have also gone down the wrong genus.

Description

I collected coriander (cilantro) seeds from my garden and sealed them in a baggie, then months later when I was going to plant them I found these tiny insects in the bag and noticed the holes in the seeds. They were identified in the Facebook group Antman's Hill as coriander seed wasps (Systole coriandri).
