User's notes

Fungal leaf spots (Ascomycete fungi) occur on some Eucalypts in the woodland. Although unsightly they do not usually affect the vigour of mature trees (exceptions).

Ruth, I'll never identify any fungi in this photo but leaf spots can be quite eye-catching so I've created Leaf spot fungus and in the notes about that category made a couple of comments about spots on leaves.

Thank you Heino. I know you will never identify which leaf spot fungus in an ordinary photo but I did want a category for them!
