Lamprospora or Octospora?
Zuidland Peter, 09-06-2021 03:07
Hi all,
I found this yesterday and I think it is Lamprospora australis from the information I can find but I am confused by the conflicting names.
Can I please get a confirmation?
The first images of it in water( last pic) showed the spores surrounded by small droplets and in all later slides/mounts, I only saw reticulation, would this be showing the spores in a different state?
Many thanks


Spores with mesh: 18.7-21.4um, droplet size 8.8-10.9um, 3-5 meshes per diameter

Re : Lamprospora or Octospora?
Hi Peter,
yes, your collection (with reticulum) is Lamprospora australis and it corresponds well also with my recent collections from Mt Lofty Ranges. The last photo (with warted spores) shows a different Lamprospora species associated with the same host (Campylopus cf. introflexus) that frequently grows together with L.australis. Morphologically it resembles L.maireana but it is a different undescribed species. It would be very interesting to obtain molecular data from both of these species.

Re : Lamprospora or Octospora?
Fabulous Lukas, thank you.

Yes both of those species were very close at the same site, it just happened I took 3 from the area and got mixed results; I will return to that area as it is one I go to frequently.

Best regards
