spermogonia and aecia unknown, possibly on Allium (Klenke & Scholler). Even if this were the case, it is almost certain that morphologically they are not with certainty distinguishable from other species on the same host plant.

on Lolium


uredinia epiphyllous, yellowish brown,, without paraphyses. Urediniospores short-oval, finely spinulose, 8-10 irregularly dispersed spores. Telia hypophyllous, black, permanently covered by the epidermis. Teliospores 2-celled, clavate.

Both Termorshuizen & Swertz and the Index Fungorum (2016)consider loliina a junior synonym of P. hordei.
