Hylotelephium erythrostictum has the advantages of high ornamental value, low maintenance price and strong adaptability. It is widely planted in various parks and flower beds in Xining city. In recent years, the plant was infected by powdery mildew, which seriously affected its growth and ornamental value. In order to identify the pathogen of powdery mildew of Hylotelephium erythrostictum, morphological and molecular biological identification of powdery mildew were carried out in this study. The phylogenetic tree constructed based on ITS gene fragment showed that the XNSF1 were clustered into one branch with S. bulbiferum infected by Erysiphe sedi (MK511841), a fungal strain collected from Korea. Therefore, through morphological observation and molecular systematology analysis, powdery mildew on H. erythrostictum were identified as E. sedi. To identify the species of powdery mildew parasitized on H. erythrostictum, and provide a theoretical basis for the study of disease occurrence and control methods.
