Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Melanopsichium austro-americanum

Melanopsichium austro-americanum (Spegazzini) Beck, 1894

on Polygonum


resembling M. pennsylvanicum, but the spores are more or less smooth rather than echinulate.


Polygonaceae, monophagous

Polygonum aviculare.


despite the fact that Vánky wrote that all European material seen by him actually belonged to pennsylvanicun, austro-americanum is listed by Almareez, on the bases of a single record, in her survey of the Spanish Ustilaginales.


Almaraz (1998a), Klenke & Scholler (2015a), Vánky (1994a).
