Early infection appears as a Light yellow flecking of the leaves. As these flecks enlarge the spores which are orange in colour protrude from the infected foliage resulting in a "rust colour" visual to the naked eye. The orange pustules of spores become somewhat longer than broad and when numerous they are arranged in rows parallel with the veins of the leaves.
