In answer to the request for a reference for Jack-in-the-Pulpit rust.
In the book Mushrooms of Northeastern North America by Alan E. Bessette,
Arleen R. Bessette and David W. Fischer,  ISBN 0-8156-2707-6 (cloth: alk.
paper). - ISBN 0-8156-0388-6 (pbk.:alk. paper) copyright 1997 published by
Syracuse University Press,  the Jack-in-the-Pulpit Rust is identified as Uromy
ces ari-triphylli  (Schweinitz) Seeler. The fruiting body is described and
microscopic features are given.
And sorry to say, it appears sometimes in our southeastern PA woods on
Jack-in-the-Pulpits, native and exotic.
