The taxonomic relationship between two microcyclic rust species, Puccinia melampodii and Puccinia xanthii, recorded from a number of Asteraceae hosts, was explored by comparing teliospore morphology, host specificity and sequence data. Teliospore morphology varied between and within individual rust accessions but, in general, teliospores of P. xanthii were… CONTINUE READING
