Extract from Wikipedia article: Puccinia poarum, the coltsfoot gall rust or meadow grass rust, is a plant pathogen. This fungal parasite forms a yellow to orange gall, 1–2 cm in diameter, on the underside of leaves of coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara). It also infects, but does not gall grasses of the family Poaceae. P. poarum is a genetically diverse species that has been reported on at least seventy plant hosts.

Persian: زنگ پای خر.
