Puccinia tepperi

Puccinia tepperi Ludwig, 1892

on Phragmites


this species, found just once in Australia, is recorded by Bahcecioglu & Gjaerum from Turkey. Because the uredinia, important for an identification, were missing, much is unclear. The material was distinctive by having the telia in large brown compact groups covering large areas of the upper side of the leaves.
