upperside of the leaves locally bleached and galled; at the corresponding underside a greyish-white fungal down consisting of erect conidiophores; towards the tip they are several times branching under a right angle. Conidia with a rounded tip. In the plant tissue locally oospores are formed, and particularly there galling occurs.
