Urediniospores cylindrical to ovoid, apex obtuse, subhyaline to yellow, (30‒)33‒44 × 23‒27 μm; wall 3‒4 μm thick, reticulate, with 4‒6 germ pores.

Telia formed from uredinia, subepidermal, erumpent, yellow.

Teliospores cylindrical to fusiform, apex rounded, 2‒5-digitate, subhyaline to yellow, 44‒60 × 12‒19μm; wall 1 μm thick at sides, 6‒12 μm thick at apex; pedicel persistent, over 60 μm.
