Fungi on Ericaceous Shrubs

When I was in the Allt a’ Choin area I noticed fungi on Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (Bearberry) and Vaccinium vitis-idaea (Cowberry).

Bruce tells me the one on Arctostaphylos is Lembosina gontardii, not common but recorded from the Highlands. The one on Vaccinium is Physalospora vitis-idaeae, quite common and widespread, but there are not many records of these things.
