Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Chrysomyxa ramischiae

Chrysomyxa ramischiae Lagerheim, 1909

on Orthilia


uredinia and telia identical to those of Chrysomyxa pyrolae but in an unusual order: in spring sori of telia mixed with uredinia, in summer sori covering the whole underside of the leaf, again with uredinia only.

host plants

Ericaceae, monophagous

Orthilia secunda.


Contrary to the closely related pyrolae, ramischiae doesn’t seem to pass through stages on Picea.
