DescriptionExobasidium ferrugineae, associated with hypertrophied flowers and less commonly leaves of Lyonia ferruginea (rusty staggerbush), is formally described here as a new species. Morphological and DNA sequence (ITS, nLSU) data are provided. Phylogenetic analyses confirm that it is not conspecific with any species of Exobasidium represented by existing DNA sequence data. A key to North American species of Exobasidium on Lyonia is presented.
