ABSTRACT: In continuation of the previous studies on rust fungi from eastern rimland of Qinghai-Xizang (Tibet) Plateau, the present paper gives an account of the morphological characters of an unusual puccinioid rust collected on Rubus pileatus Focke from western Sichuan. Generic affinity is unassured. The rust, which is here described as new, is assigned to the genus Arthuriomyces (A. rubicola sp. nov.) tentatively.
