Campanulaceae, oliogophagous

Campanula cochlearifolia, lingulata, persicifolia, rapunculus, rotundifolia, scheuchzeri, trachelium, tridentata, ? uniflora; Jasione montana.


Puccinia novae-zembliae Jørstad, 1923.


Gäumann & Jaag (1935) described three species that differ from campanulae in the measurement of the teliospores: rytzi on C. cochleriifolia ((12)15-19-(17) x (20)27-34(40) µm); campanulae-rotundifoliae on C. rotudifdolia ((9)12-15(20) x (19)27-31(42) µm) and campanulae-scheuchzeri on C. scheuchzeri((9)11-14(19) x (27)32-36(44) µm). Most authors take them for identical to campanulae.
