Ustilago hordei (Persoon) Lagerheim, 1899
covered smut of barley and oats
Smut of the grains. Characteristically, the spore mass is not blown out, but remains as a clump within the glumes. The spores are smooth, measure 7(8)-9(11) µm, and are olive brown at one side, almost hyaline at the other. Infected culms remain abnormally short.
The English name “Covered Smut” refers to the fact that the spore mass remains covered by the glumes.
