Coleosporium telekiae, a New Member of the Norwegian Rust Flora

H. B. Gjærum, L. Semb, and V. Talgø

October 2008


A rust was found on a 20-year-old ornamental perennial Telekia speciosa in Ås, Akershus Co., Norway. The morphological characteristics of the fungus were consistent with the description of Coleosporium telekiae Thüm. except that the telia were more orange-coloured and had slightly shorter teliospores. This is the first report of C. telekiae in Norway.
