Myrtle Rust Austropuccinia psidii

Description

Seedling (one of many seen) ramarama (Lophomyrtus bullata) infected with Austropuccinia psidii (old and fresh uredospores present).

This is the first time I have seen myrtle rust widespread in indigenous forest as well as it attacking seedlings on the forest floor.

This site I have deliberately obscured because it is on private land that is intended to be used for an MBIE Endeavour Funded study that I am involved in, examining Austropuccinia and it's impact on indigenous vegetation.

The project lead is Dr Maj Padamsee (Landcare Research)
