Fourteen isolates of tomato powdery mildew (Oidium neolycopersici) and one isolate of the following species: Podosphaera fusca (= Sphaerotheca fusca), Erysiphe orontii (cucumber powdery mildews), Erysiphe cicho­ra­cearum (lettuce powdery mildew) and Erysiphe aquilegiae var. ranunculi (Ranunculus lingua powdery mildew) were used for com­parative morpho­logical studies. Basic characteristics of the anamorphs, including outer conidial wall patterns, were compared using light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In main morphological features, O. neo­lyco­persici was strongly differentiated from E. cichoracearum, E. orontii and P. fusca. However, based on morphological features (e.g. germination type; appres­sorium shape; morphology of conidiophores) O. neolyco­per­sici was close to E. aquilegiae var. ranunculi (both belong to Oidium subgen. Pseudo­idium) and it probably could be placed to Erysiphe sect. Erysiphe (= Erysiphe s. str.)
