Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A powdery mildew on Acantholimon hedinii was collected in China, examined, described, and proposed as a new species, Erysiphe acantholimonis. Recognition of this new species is supported by phylogenetic analyses of the internal transcribed spacer regions including 5.8S and 28S rDNA sequences from three E. acantholimonis specimens. A comparison with and a key to the three species of Erysiphe on hosts belonging to the family Plumbaginaceae are provided.
