Erysiphe cumminsiana andE. galeopsidis, which have immature asci in the current season, have been recorded from Japan, but the ascospores of both fungi have not been described. In the present experiments, some observations before and after overwintering were made on the cleistothecia ofE. cumminsiana on three species ofCacalia and two species ofLigularia, andE. galeopsidis onGeranium thunbergii. After overwintering, the former fungus developed six to eight, rarely four spores in an ascus and…

TLDR
Germinated ascospores penetrated the epidermal cells of wheat leaves and produced haustoria as known in the case of conidial infections, and chasmothecia and ascospore development is induced by moist conditions and is a fast process compared with other powdery mildews.
Two new species of erysiphaceae from Japan
Two new powdery mildew fungi were found onCelosia argentea var.argentea (Amaranthaceae) andLonicera ramosissima (Caprifoliaceae), respectively. They were newly named and described asErysiphe celosia
