Abstract

Entorrhiza casparyana is reported for the first time from Korea and Asia. This is the fourth record of this smut fungus on Juncus tenuis. As the mature galls and spores of E. casparyana, in all collections on Juncus tenuis known from Korea, Europe, and Costa Rica, are smaller than those on other hosts, a new variety is proposed and illustrated, viz. Entorrhiza casparyana var. tenuis.
