Taxonomy and nomenclature of new Indian powdery mildew taxa described by Paul & Thakur (2006) have been revised and reassessed on the base of the current phylogenetic generic concept of the Erysiphaceae. The following species are validated, redescribed and illustrated: Erysiphe farmanii sp. nov., E. ficicola sp. nov., E. machiliana sp. nov., E. malloticola sp. nov., E. quercifolia sp. nov., Phyllactinia bauhiniae sp. nov. and P. cassiae-fistulae sp. nov. Furthermore, the following new combinations are introduced: Erysiphe religiosa comb. nov. (= Uncinula aspera var. solani), E. cyclobalanopsidis comb. nov. and E. kumaonensis comb. nov.
