Full Text:



Albugo candida, cause of white rust, is reported to occur on Aurinia saxatilis (synonym: Alyssum saxatile). The pathogen was found on landscape plants growing in a private garden in Seattle, WA where it over-wintered on infected leaves. This appears to be the first report of A. candida on this host in the USA.
