Time to take this seriously.
During the collection of tropical powdery mildews in Cibodas Botanical Garden and Mount Tangkuban Perahu in Indonesia, we found interesting specimens on Castanopsis javanica (Fagaceae). Phylogenetic analysis using a combination of 28S and ITS rDNA sequences clearly showed that this fungus forms a distinct lineage among the Erysiphe species found on hosts of the plant genus Castanopsis. Therefore, we consider this fungus a new species of Erysiphe, described here as Erysiphe javanica. Differences between E. javanica and closely related Erysiphe species are discussed.
