Leaf galls on Festuca.
The following are listed as hosts in various literature sources:
Leaf galls induced by
Anguina graminis on Festuca rubra L. are exploited by Rathayibacter festucae (type strain VKM Ac-1390(T) UCM
Ac-619(T)) which is a coryneform actinomycete. Rathayibacter festucae
is easily recognized among other yellow-pigmented rathayibacters because of its
rose-orange-colored colonies (Dorofeeva et al., 2002).
