Hi,
It has been observed that only the mangroves
Sonneratia apetala shows fungus type growth
on the leaves ,flowers and fruits.later the white fibrous
material spreads with wind all over the area (like bombax ceiba)
No other mangrove spp.do suffer from this type of disease
Expert may pl.comment
Thanks

Many thanks Pravin ji ... never took a close look at this kind of fungal growth -- all the time have been thinking it to be related to salt secretion !!
Regards.

I really doubt this to be a fungal infection. Seems like some nesting
thing for some insect. May be spider!

May be some scale insects.
