    I’m confused.
    You are describing appendages of spores but showing the appendages on chasmothecia.
    I thought the sexual spores of a powdery mildew were formed in asci within the chasmothecia.
    Do the spores themselves have appendages? or only the fruiting body – the chasmothecia?

    Fay, sorry for confusing you, and thanks for pointing that out.
    You are right, of course.
    The appendages “arise from the outer peridial cells of the chasmothecia”.
    The sexual spores within the asci, within the fruiting body, do not have appendages.
