similar to P. absinthii. The distance between the spines on the urediniospores is 3-4 µm (in absinthii 4-5 µm) and the thickness of the lateral cell wall is 3 µm (in absinthii 1.5-2 µm). Gäumann writes for this species that the uredinia cover the entire underside of the leaf; perhaps this is an additional character.
