First report of rust caused by Pucciniastrum boehmeriae on mamaki (Pipturus albidus) in Hawaii
Plant Disease 98 (6), 855-855
Abstract: During 2013, mamaki plants (Pipturus albidus) growing in Hawaii, U.S.A. were observed with leaf rust symptoms, including vein-delimited chlorotic spots on the adaxial surface and yellow to orange uredinia on the abaxial surface. The fungus Pucciniastrum boehmeriae was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis.
