Antherospora vindobonensis

Antherospora vindobonensis Bauer, Lutz, Begerow, Piątek & Vánky, 2008

on Asparagaceae

host plants

Asparagaceae, monophagous

Scilla bifolia.


The species was described from Scilla vindobonensis & subsp. borhidiana, but according to the Euro+Med PlantBase (2014), this is synonym of S. bifolia. Thereby vanishes the ecological difference from A. scillae, that also morphologically is fully similar; what remains are DNA-data.
