Thecaphora alsinearum (Ciferri) Vánky & Lutz, 2007
Fungi, Basidiomycota, Ustilaginomycetes, Urocystidales
the entire, strongly contracted, inflorescence is modified into a powdery, pale yellowish-brown mass of spore balls. Because it remains enclosed by the lower bracts the whole looks like a swollen terminal bud. The spore balls, that very easily desintegrate, consist of some tens of verrucose spores.
Caryophyllaceae, narrowly monophagous
Stellaria holostea, media.
Sorosporium alsinearum Ciferri, 1928
