Puccinia vesiculosa

Puccinia vesiculosa Schlechtendal, 1820

on Anemone


No host plant alternation, only telia. Telia amphigenous, on yellowed leaf spots, small but confluent to several mm large groups, initially covered by the epidermis, eventually rupturing and then blackish brown and pulverulent; no paraphyses. Teliospores oval, two-celled; wall smooth, uniform in thickness; pedicel hyaline, short, deciduous.


Ranunculceae, monophagous

Anemonastrum narcissiflorum.


Puccinia scheliana von Thümen, 1880.


the blackish brown powdery groups of telia may easily lead to confusion with Urocystis anemones.


Brandenburger (1985a), Gäumann (1959a), Klenke & Scholler (2015a), Poelt & Zwetko (1997a).
