Two biotrophic plant parasitic fungi viz. Phyllactinia acaciae and Ravenelia sp. are newly reported from Iran on Acacia oerfota (Forssk.) Schweinf (Fabaceae). Both taxa are documented by describing morphological features and providing photomicrographs. This is the first report of leaf parasitic fungi on Acacia in Iran. Moreover, Ravenelia is a new genus for Iranian rust mycobiota. We also report P. acaciae as a new powdery mildew from Western Asia.
Study of the following specimen of Acacia oerfota collected from southern Iran revealed that the specimen was infected by a rust fungus and powdery mildew at the same time:
