gall

The ovaries are malformed, filled with rotund balls, each consisting of some 50-80 tightly adhering spores.

hostplants

Cyperaceae, monophagous

Schoenus ferrugineus, nigricans.

Tomasi (2014a) additionally cites Schoenoplectus lacustris & subsp. glaucus and Schoenoplectus litoralis; the association of these plants with M. kochiana is very improbable. In Vánky’s book no smut is mentioned for Schoenoplectus.

synonyms

Tolyposporium kochianum.
