Three new species of Tilletia on Eriachne from north-western Australia

Li, Ying-Ming and Shivas, Roger Graham ORCID: and Cai, Lei (2014) Three new species of Tilletia on Eriachne from north-western Australia. Mycoscience, 55 (5). pp. 361-366. ISSN 1340-3540


Three new species of Tilletia are described from species of Eriachne (Poaceae) in the arid tropics of north-western Australia. In Western Australia, T. mactaggartii sp. nov. infects E. burkittii, and T. geeringii sp. nov. infects E. festucacea. Tilletia marjaniae sp. nov. infects E. pulchella subsp. dominii in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. These species are the first records of Tilletia on Eriachne. Phylogenetic relationships of these species were inferred from internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal RNA region and large subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.
