No hostplant alternation; np spermogonia, aecia or uredinia. Telia on all parts of the plant, soon naked, brown. Spores mostly 2-celled; between the two cells an distinct constriction.

Gâumann writes that the spores are easily shed, and that the hyaline pedicel is “short”. Contrariwise, González Fragoso describes the pedicel as “not particularly short”, which agrees with his drawing.
