Description:Mycelium consisting of branched, septate, smooth, hyaline, thin-walled, 1.5-2 µm wide hyphae. Conidiophores solitary, macronematous, erect, arising from superficial mycelium; base somewhat inflated, lobed or with rhizoids, up to 10 µm wide; conidiophore stipe subcylindrical, straight to curved, rarely geniculate-sinuous, wall up to 1 µm wide, medium brown, sometimes paler towards the tip, smooth, 1-6-septate, 35-160 µm tall, 4-6 µm wide. Conidiogenous cells terminal, straight, subcylindrical, tapering towards a flat-tipped locus, occasionally once geniculate, with two loci, medium brown, smooth, 15-35 x 4-6 µm; locus flattened, undifferentiated or very slightly darkened and thickened along the rim, not refractive, 1.5-2 µm wide. Conidia occurring in branched chains. Ramoconidia subcylindrical to narrowly ellipsoidal, straight to geniculate-sinuous, 17-35 x 4-5 µm, medium brown, smooth, thin-walled, frequently branching laterally, with apical and lateral subdenticulate conidial hila, 1.5-2.5 µm wide; secondary ramoconidia hyaline or subhyaline. Conidia aseptate, (10-)12-17(-20) x (3.5-)4(-4.5) µm, in branched (-6), hyaline or subhyaline, guttulate, ellipsoidal-fusiform, with obtuse ends, or tapering to obconically subtruncate ends with hila that are inconspicuous (not darkened nor refractive or thickened), 0.5-1 µm wide.
