Puccinia tanaceti

Description

Puccinia tanaceti is a rust fungus that affects the leaves of Tansy, Feverfew and Mugwort (Tanacetum, Artemisia), with brown uredinia and darker telia on both sides of the leaf.  There is no host alternation, and spermagonia and aecia are not formed.  It is not considered to be a gall-causer.

Taxonomy is complex, and some authors consider that a range of different species affect Artemisia.
