The present paper summarizes the taxonomic studies of Erysiphaceae (Helotiales, Ascomycota) in Azerbaijan. It represents a
checklist of powdery mildews, which was prepared by combining all data collected from various works dealing with mycobiota
of the country since mid of the last century. Consequently, 133 taxa belonging to the currently recognised genera – Arthrocladiella,
Blumeria, Erysiphe, Golovinomyces, Leveillula, Neoërysiphe, Phyllactinia, Podosphaera, Sawadaea of the family Erysiphaceae
have been reported. Host plants include angiosperms from 51 families and 227 genera. Current systematic position of each
powdery mildew fungus was given with detailed information on their examined specimens.
Keywords: distribution, herbarium specimen, host plant, plant pathogen, taxon.
