Leaf spots amphigenous, oblong-linear, lenticular, short, 1-3 x 0.3-0.5 mm, sometimes expanded, up to 30 x 1-2 mm, yellowish-ochraceous, pale to medium brown, margin indefinite, sometimes with a yellowish halo, finally often confluent, occasionally large leaf segments or almost entire leaves discoloured, necrotic. Caespituli amphigenous, mostly hypophyllous, punctiform, greyish white or with a pale pink tinge, arranged in lines between veins. Mycelium internal; hyphae hyaline, septate, sparsely branched, smooth, 1-5 ?m wide; stromata absent or small, 10-30 ?m wide, hyaline, subhyaline to pale brown. Conidiophores in small fascicles (2-15), loose, occasionally solitary, arising from internal hyphae or stromata, emerging through stomata, occasionally erumpent, erect, 15-70 x 3-5 ?m, simple, occasionally forked, lower part straight, subcylindric to sinuous, somewhat narrowed towards the tip, apex curved, uncinate to irregularly twisted (often curved back towards the main axis of the conidiophore, like a swan's neck or shepherd's crook), tips often slightly swollen, colourless, 0-3-septate, smooth; conidial scars conspicuous, somewhat thickened, darkened. Conidia solitary, obovoid, ellipsoid-subglobose, (5-)6-12(-15) x (4-)5-9 ?m, aseptate, hyaline, almost smooth to verruculose-echinulate, both ends more or less broadly rounded; hilum basal, usually somewhat eccentric, hardly or very slightly thickened, somewhat darkened.
