Note: Chupp in his monograph (1954) did not give any morphological description for this fungus but stated that it might be a Cercosporella. However, Deighton said that this fungus is not a Cercosporella and he cited a brief morphological statement of this fungus as: Conidia borne as terminal blastospores on conidiophores which are short lateral branches or terminations of external repent mycelial hyphae, and the conidial scars are inconspicuous and unthickened (Deighton, Mycol. Pap. 133:3, 1973). The original literature given by Sun (Plant Prot. Bull. 9:96, 1967) only cited the name of the disease caused by this fungus on Prunus persica as "white mold disease of peach" (or frosty mildew). No type specimen and original morphological description of this fungus is available.
