One of the experts in that rust is in your state, which should make it 
fairly easy for you to make contact and get up-to-date answers to your 
answers. He is Henry Amerson, in the botany department at North Carolina 
St. University. 
If you - or anyone else in this group - has any questions on cereal rusts 
or on taxonomy, distribution, etc., of any rust in general, I (we) can try 
to help.
