Oidium lactis Fres. is likely to be a synonym of Oospora lactis (Fres.)
Sacc, which is now regarded as a synonym of Geotrichum candidum Link. The
teleomorph of this genus is Dipodascus Lagerheim (Dipodascaceae,
Saccharomycetales [acc. to Dict of Fungi 8th ed]). You might check out refs
at Sacc. Syll. IV: 15 and Mycotaxon IV: 405 (1976).

I have a German article from 1893 that mentions the cell shape of the
organism Oidium lactis to be cylindric, rounded at the ends, and of
variable length. Please contact me if you know this organism (Is it a
bacterium or yeast?) or its current name, in case it changed. Where could
I find more information about it?
