>However in the CABI database of fungal names the authority is given as

    Le basionyme est:

Uredo punctiformis F. Strauss

    publie dans:

F. K. J. von Strauss. 1810. - Ueber die Persoonschen Stilbospora,
Uredo und Puccinia. Ann. weterauischen Ges. gesammte Naturk., 2, p.

    La combinaison Puccinia punctiformis (J. Strauss) Rohl. est
publiee, p. 132 (esp. numero 13) dans:

J. C. Roehling. 1813. - Deutschlands Flora. Ein botanisches
Taschenbuch. Dritter Theil. Kryptogamische Gewaechse. 2. Aufl.
Frankfurt am Mayn. Friedrich Wilmans.

    Ni Dietel (1860-1947) ni Holway (1853-1923) ne peuvent etre
auteurs d'un nom publie en 1813! La citation Puccinia punctiformis
Dietel et Holw. (1813) est donc fausse.

    Meilleures salutations,

    Jacques Melot (Reykjavik)
