Conidia curved, usually sigmoid when mature, obclavate or subfusiform, often constricted at the septa, conico-truncate at the base, subhyaline to pale brown except for the second and occasionally the third cell which are mid to dark brown, smooth-walled, 3-5-septate, 45-90 µm ?long, 11-18 µm ?thick in the widest part, tapering to 3-5 µm ?near the apex, 6-9 µm ?wide at the base, septa averaging 16 µm ?apart. On dead branches and leaves, usually associated with and growing over pycnidia or perithecia of other fungi.
