Caption: White rust fungus on a leaf. Light micrograph of a section through a plant leaf infected with white rust fungus (Albugo candida). Albugo is a type of parasitic oomycete (water mould) that attacks flowering plants, causing white blisters or 'rust'. The mould's hyphae (blue threads) suck nutrients from the host cell. Fertilised oospores (round green-brown) can also be seen. Magnification: x5 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
