Entyloma eburneum: anamorph

anamorphic stage

Entyloma eburneum: conidia

anamorphic stage, acicular conidia


Ssori as pale, flat, sharly delimited hard pustules, up to 2 mm wide and 4 mm long, often adjacent to a vein. Embedded in the host tissue are groups if intercellular, hyaline-yellowish spores. The spores are globular, smooth, ø 11-14 µm, wall relatively thin, ± 1.5 µm thick, regular. Both at the upper side and the underside anamorphic spires are formed in colonies of dense bundles of conidiophores; de conidia in two types, cylindric 3-4 x 15-22 µm and acicular, 3-4 x 30-45 µm.

host plants

Ranunculaceae, narrowly monophagous

Ranunculus bulbosus, polyanthemos, repens.

In the literature before the revision by Kruse ao this species (mostly as E. ranunculi-repentis) was associated with a considerable number of other species; these associations are now in a need of reconsideration:

Ranunculus acris & subsp. friesianus, breyninus, cassubicus, crenatus, fallax, hyperboreus, lanuginosus, monophyllus, peltatus, polyanthemos subsp. nemorosus, sardous, trichophyllus, villosus subsp. constantinopolitanus.


Entyloma ranunculi-repentis Sternon, 1925; E. wroblewskii Kochman, 1934.
