Leveillula cylindrospora

Leveillula cylindrospora Braun, 1989

on Amaranthaceae, (Caryophyllaceae)


mycelium white, generally dense, amphigenous; partly internal. Contrary to what is the rule in Leveillula species, there is no difference between the primary conidia and the ones that are formed later; they all are oblong-elliptic. Cleistothecia contain numerous asci, that have two spores. Appendages poorly developed, variable in number, shorter than the diameter, mycelioid, irregularly branched.
