Puccinia pragmitis (I think?)

I've always tended to ignore Rusts as I have always considered them above my pay grade.
However since they appear to be "flavour of the month", Here goes - - - - 

I have to confess I am cheating big time!  The latest edition of the Forayer which came through the letterbox yesterday included a piece on the Rusts on Broad Leaved Dock. Since I have plenty of Dock I thought I would give it a go, and came up with this specimen without too much trouble.

Whist looking I also came across this specimen on Silene dioica. Over to you Nigel on this one as I have no crib sheet this time!

  1. Rust on Dock is not a rust but rust on Silene dioica is Puccinia arenariae - well done Tony
