Abstract
In the present study 36 taxa of the rust fungi are described and illustrated from Northern areas of Pakistan. Among these phagmidium, artemisiae, Puccinia potentillidis-argentatae, Uromyces hedysariis-falconeri, Aecidium cheilanthae, A. circii, A. danyorensis, A. ikramii, A. pakistanicum, A. ribidis-orientalae and A. veronicaedis-pericae are new to science.

Occurrence of a Phragmidium sp. On a member of the family Asteraceae is being reported for the first time. Uredinales viz. Melampsora chelidanii-pierotii and Puccinia arthraxonis-ciliaris are new records from Pakistan.

The state I of Phragmidium bulbosum on Rubus ulmifolius, Phragmidium mysorense on Rubus niveus, Puccinia Pimpinellae on Pimpinella diversifolia, state II of Puccinia ambigua on Galium aparine and state III of Puccinia sonchi on Sonchus sp. Have not been collected previously from Pakistan.

In addition, Salix flabellaris for Melampsora epitea, Polygonum plebejum for Uromyces polygoni-aviculariae and Adiantum venustum for Uredo capilli-veneris are new hosts for these rust fungi.

The remaining rust taxa viz Coleosporium lycopi, Phragmidium rosae-moschatae, phargmidium tuberculatum, Puccinia argentata, Puccinia coronata, puccinia garaminis, Puccinia Komarovii, Puccinia menthae, Puccinia nitidula, Puccinia nepalensis, Puccinia taraxaci, Aecidium clematidis and Aecidium montamum have already been reported from different areas of Pakistan. However these are reported for the first time from Northern areas.

Hyalopsora polypoau, peridermium sp. and Gymunosporangium clavariaeforme though reported by earlier workers have been described and illustrated to represent the spectrum of rust flora of Northren Areas of Pakistan.
