Notes on some rust fungi in Vietnam.

Abstract

Sixteen rust species and two unconnected Peridermium collected in Vietnam are enumerated. For all the rust species except Hemileia vastatrix, Olivea tectonae, and Puccinia thwaitesii, these are the first records of their occurrence in Vietnam. Some taxonomic and pathological considerations are noted for two economically important pine stem rusts.
