A new rust fungus, Phragmidium punjabense sp. nov., is described on Rosa brunonii from the Punjab province in Pakistan. The species can be readily distinguished from other Phragmidium spp. on Rosa but is very similar to a number of species on Rubus that belong to the "Phragmotelium group" within Phragmidium. In addition to the new species Phragmidium yangii is proposed as a new name for the illegitimate P. longissima Y. M. Liang & T. Yang and the new combination Phragmidium mysorense for Phragmotelium mysorense Thirum. & Mundk. In addition, the new rust fungus was sequenced using LSU and ITS markers and the sequences were submitted to GenBank as future barcode reference.
