What is the host, Martin -

What is the host, Martin - Mercurialis? Your species uses Larix and Populus, which this is obviously not. Could it be Melampsora populnea which does use Mercurialis as a host?

Host is indeed Dog's Mercury

I thought it was Melampsora populina but this name is apparently invalid? Then I got confused. Thanks for the clarification.
