Abstract: In a 1989 publication, the 74 species of rust fungi (order Uredinales)
known to occur in Hawai'i were listed, based on newly collected material; herbarium
specimens, principally those at the Bernice P. Bishop Museum (BISH); and information
provided by F. L. Stevens in his 1925 publication on Hawaiian fungi. Stevens
had noted an underrepresentation of this group in Hawai'i, which he attributed to
the archipelago's isolation from continental landmasses. Since the time of the 1989
publication, 16 additional rusts have been recognized in Hawai'i. These include
both recently introduced species, such as Coleosporium plumeriae Pat. on plumeria,
and those recently discovered, such as Puccinia rugispora Gardner and P. rutainsulara
Gardner on endemic Rutaceae. New host and location records and other
important updating information on this well-defined group of fungi in Hawai'i are
also included.
