The “White Moulds, Ramularia and Phacellium Anamorphs in Wales and Britain” is the latest in an
award-winning series of books on phytoparasitic fungi written by the Welsh Microfungi Group. This volume
covers the White Moulds which are a comparatively neglected group compared to the Rusts, Smuts,
Downy and Powdery Mildews. However, they are very common and can be conspicuous, infecting a wide
range of plants and a few species are economically important as agricultural and horticultural pathogens.
There are around 350 species worldwide, including about 108 recorded for Britain and Ireland, of which 81 have so far been found in Wales. Most are surprisingly easy to identify.
