Cladosporium aecidiicola on spermogonia of Tranzschelia pruni-spinosae on Anemone ranunculoides is reported from Austria. It is the first record of this species from spermogonia. The following new records are reported for the first time: Merendera attica, as a new host of Urocystis colchici (from Bulgaria); Helleborus orientalis, as a new host of Urocystis floccosa – a new species for Turkey; Cantharellus amethysteus from Bulgaria; and Badhamia dubia from Turkey. New combinations of Microbotryum viviparum on Polygonum viviparum in Bauhinus, and Neovossia japonica on Alopecurus geniculatus in Tilletia are proposed.

A taxonomic revision of Melampsora on Populus in Bulgaria was carried out. The study yielded distributions of M. allii-populina, M. populnea (f. sp. laricis, f. sp. magnusiana, f. sp. pinitorqua, and f. sp. rostrupii) and M. larici-populina on 20 host species of Allium, Mercurialis, Pinus, and Populus, representing a total of 28 rust/host combinations. Three species of Populus are recorded as new hosts for Bulgaria. The morphological characteristics and distribution of these rust fungi are reported.
