Albugo candida belongs to oomycota, which is psuedofungi because its cell wall is made up of cellulose instead of chitin in true fungi. The photo shown is the sexual stage and it is oogamous. One to many relatively large, non-flagellated eggs are produced in oogonium. Albugo candida is pathogenic and so commonly known as white rust fungus, attacking mustard greens or Indian mustard.
Very informative description. It will be even better if you can include an insert of an enlarged oogonium for clear labelling.
