Description:Mycelium consisting of branched, septate, smooth, hyaline, hyphae. Conidiophores solitary, macronematous, subcylindrical, erect, arising from superficial mycelium, septate, pigmented, smooth; base somewhat inflated, lobed or with rhizoids. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal, monoblastic, determinate, subcylindrical, tapering towards a single flat-tipped locus, straight to once geniculate, occasionally with two loci, pigmented, smooth; locus flattened, undifferentiated to somewhat darkened and thickened along the rim, not refractive, giving rise to a single conidial chain or a single ramoconidium with several simple acropetal chains of secondary ramoconidia or conidia. Conidia occurring in branched chains; ramoconidia subcylindrical to narrowly ellipsoidal, straight to geniculate-sinuous, with apical and lateral conidial hila; ramoconidia with broadly truncate base medium brown; secondary ramoconidia with narrowed base subhyaline or hyaline, smooth; conidia aseptate, in chains, hyaline, guttulate, ellipsoidal with obtuse ends; hila inconspicuous, not darkened nor refractive or thickened.
