underside of the leaf
Fungi of the genus Endophyllum do not have the usual four sporetypes, but only spermogonia and aecia. The spermogonia are small, yellow, lying scattered among the aecia. The hypophyllous, numerous aecia are small globules, for a large part sunken into the leaf tissue, once mature opening cup-like.
Centranthus angustifolius, calcitrapae, ruber.
