Uredo rangelii, a taxon in the guava rust complex, newly recorded on Myrtaceae in Australia
Uredo rangelii (myrtle rust) is reported for the first time in Australia — detected on 22 April 2010 — from Agonis flexuosa, Callistemon viminalis and Syncarpia glomulifera, but DNA sequence data place it in the P. psidii complex. Expand
Phaeoseptoria eucalypti and similar fungi on Eucalyptus, with description of Kirramyces gen. nov. (Coelomycetes)
The new genus Kirramyces is erected for P. eucalypti, with prominent, brown, rough-walled, percurrently proliferating conidiogenous cells, which is shown to be distinct from the type species of Phaeoseptoria, P. papayae. Expand
Pacific Mycogeography: Deficiencies and Irregularities in the Distribution of Plant Parasitic Fungi
A study of the relative abundance of several groups of plant parasitic fungi in various countries suggests that the native floras of Australia and New Zealand are deficient in some groups relatively common elsewhere, and several taxa, including one family, are recognized for the first time in Australia.

Type studies on Gaeumannomyces graminis and related fungi
Examination of the type and other specimens of Gaeumannomyces graminis (Sacc.) Arx & Olivier and of Ophiobolus oryzinus Sacc. has shown that they are identical, and should be known under the name G.Expand
Biochemical properties of cloned glutathione S-transferases from Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma japonicum.
Multivariate analysis suggests that Sm28GST has an overall catalytic homology with mammalian Mu class GSTs, whilst the enzymatic properties of Sj26GST appear to constitute a hybridisation of Mu and Alpha class features. Expand
The correct binomial for the chrysanthemum ray blight pathogen in relation to its geographical distribution
No evidence could be found of the presence of the ray blight pathogen in Italy before 1960, and this fungus is shown to be a species of Mycosphaerella. Expand
Poplar rusts in Australia with comments on potential conifer rusts
Both M. medusae and laricipopulina have been recorded in Australia for the first time, and the possible effect of these rusts on Australian forestry is discussed, and several other rusts in Australia with known conifer aecial hosts elsewhere are listed. Expand
