VANEGAS BERROUET, Katherin Maritza and SALAZAR YEPES, Mauricio. Addictions to the Uredinales Biota (fungi) in Colombia. Rev.Fac.Nal.Agr.Medellín [online]. 2011, vol.64, n.2, pp. 6121-6128. ISSN 0304-2847.
Plant collections with symptoms of rusts fungi (Uredinales, Basidiomycota) made during recent years in provinces of Amazonas, Antioquia, Caldas, Cundinamarca, Tolima and Valle del Cauca have been studied and deposited in Museo Micológico of Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Sede Medellín (MMUNM). The rusts species Puccinia investita, Sphenospora pallida, Crossopsora piperis, Uredo psychotriicola and Pucciniosira solani are new records for Colombia. A first record for this country of rust fungi in plants of family Dioscoreaceae has been also made. The anamorphic name Uredo parthenii published in 2003 in Colombia, has been corrected by the valid teleomorph Puccinia schileana. Finally, six new hosts parasitized by rusts are recorded, including Origanum vulgare L. a world-wide important aromatic and medicinal plant.
