notes

A. candida often is found in association with downy mildews, like Hyalopenorospora parasitica (Buhr, Redfern & Shirley), brassicae, or H. lunariae. As a matter of fact, Bains & Jhooty write that Albugo predisposes the plant for the mildew.

It has been shown that A. candida lives as an endophyte in many plants within the Brassicaceae, that are completely asymptomatic. Because also the fruits are infected, the fungus is transmitted from one generation to the other (Ploch & Thines).

DNA analysis has demonstrated a high degree of variation within this “species”.
Two albugo’s therefore have been set apart as independent species, viz. the parasites of Cardamine amara and pratensis, and the one of C. hirsuta, as A. leimonia and A. hohenheimia, repectively (Ploch ea, 210a).
