Abstract

During August 2015 and 2016, white powdery colonies were found on the lower surface of the poplar (Populus deltoides) leaves in Kashmir province, India. White powdery patches were observed embedded with scattered, black fruiting bodies late in the growing season. The disease caused premature defoliation. The fungus associated with the white colonies was identified as Phyllactinia guttata (Wallr.) Lev. by morphological characterization. This is the first report of Phyllactinia guttata causing powdery mildew disease on Populus deltoides from Jammu and Kashmir, India.
