Asexual reproduction by forming spores of a fungal like organism, Albugo, which belongs to Oomycota (water mold).
Collected by Yiuman/Mr. Woo
The white rust fungus, Albugo species, is the water mold and plant pathogen which attacks a variety of vegetables. It is a big concern for the farmers.
Asexual reproduction is the main way Albugo reproduces. Its hyphae is developing a bedlike mass between the mesophyll cell and epidermis cell of the host. Sporangia will be produced continually at the enlarged tip of the hyphae which will cause the epidermis to uplift and rupture eventually, releasing the mature sporangia.
