Description

white blister rust. First NZ record on this host but very common and widespread in Christchurch. First photo shows Albugo candida with the (greyer) downy mildew Hyaloperonospora lunariae, itself a new record for New Zealand (which I can't add because the NZOR lookup isn't working). The latter species seems to be consistently associated with the former across several sites in Chch.

Description from Wikipedia

Oomycota or oomycetes (oömycetes) form a distinct phylogenetic lineage of fungus-like eukaryotic microorganisms. They are filamentous, microscopic, absorptive organisms that reproduce both sexually and asexually. Oomycetes occupy both saprophytic and pathogenic lifestyles – and include some of the most notorious pathogens of plants, causing devastating diseases such as late blight of potato and sudden oak death. They are also often referred to as water molds (or water moulds), although the water-preferring nature which led to that...
