On the basis of symptoms on the host plants, the disease is known as white rust (WR), white blister, stagheads, and white blister rust (Persoon, Synopsis methodica fungorum, pp. 706, 1801; Kuntze, Revisio generum plantarum, 1891; Biga, Sydowia, 9:339–358, 1955; Saharan and Verma, White rusts: A review of economically important species, 1992) all over the world.
