    Gall caused by a rust fungus, about 10cm across, on a large Acacia Mearnsii. Update: Uromycladium tepperianum has been split into at least 16 different species each infecting a different range of Acacia species. The one on Acacia mearnsii is called Uromycladium murphyi. See "Diversity of gall-forming rusts (Uromycladium, Pucciniales) on Acacia in Australia" by C. Doungsa-ard et al, Persoonia vol. 40, 2018 pages 221–238.

    1. David Francis  Hi Jeff, great to have you keeping ahead of the game! Split into 16 species - that's a lot! We usually wait until the new names appear in the ALA before updating. The ALA names are sourced from Ausfungi (MEL)
