Indicates there are 3 species on Avena sativam Puccinia coronata, P. graminis & P. rubigo-vera agropyri. Its an old book book intended for North America so I’m not sure how much that matches up with your European choices. I think it will be tricky to get past Puccinia… Also, all 3 rusts seem to be present on a wide variety of plants.

think I found it. It seems to be Avena sativa, what do you think?

In that case, the fungus should be Puccinia coronata (f.sp. avenae).

searching for host name (some gramineae), but there is a photo of it for now. I saw the same fungus on other specie of gramineae some days ago.
