Coleosporium narcissi Groves, 1922

on Pinus ?

gall

see Coleosporium tussilaginis sensu lato.

spermogonia, aecia

probably, like all other Coleosporium species:

Pinus.


on Narcissus

gall

orange coloured, hypophyllous uredinia; telia not known.

uredinia, telia

Amaryllidacese, monophagous

Narcissus poeticus.

Even the exact name of the host plant is uncertain. Henderson (2000a) writes of N. poeticus, but in 2004 he switches to N. pseudonarcissus.

notes

This is the only Coleosporium known from a monocotyledonous host plant. Therefore it is very unfortunate that the species has been collected only once (in the UK), and that only the uredinia are known.
