Thai Chili plant leaves curling and falling like crazy (pictures)

Hi There,

I have a Thai Chili plant with leaves that are curling and falling off. It looks like all the leaves are this way.

I also have a "Garden Salsa" chili plant that is starting to exhibit the same symptoms.

I went out to take pictures tonight and also noticed that the BOTTOM of the leaves are a powdery white.

Can anyone please help identify what might be going on?

Extra info:
-I live in southern california
-I smell nothing around the soil
-Last picture looks like there might be a bug on it? I can't tell.

A disease of some sort. the back sides of the leaves have a thick layer of fungus.

Treatment against fungus disease is mainly to prevent it by spraying -- protecting --healthy new growth. Sorry, but the prognosis for your plants is extremely poor.
