I cant remember the name tonight but I think I saw this one on http://www.mycolog.com/fifthtoc.html also maybe in the swiss book, I cant remember the name but I remember it grew on aspen and yellow spots on leaves. I am certain I saw it in one of the 2 and even went looking for it on a few trees at a local park but did not get to see it there.

When there is Puccinia?

How do you tell Puccinia from other rust genera? Are the other rust genera in Pucciniales?

Why Puccinia when there are hundreds of other rust genera?
