Description:Conidiophores simple or complex.Simple conidiophores arising laterally or terminally from aerial mycelium, solitary to aggregated, unbranched or sparsely branched with up to three phialides, 1–3-septate, 56–96 µm long; phialides monophialidic, cylindrical, tapering towards the apex, 10–51 µm long, 2–3 µm wide at the base, 3 µm at the widest point, 1.5–2.5 µm near the aperture. Complex conidiophores aggregated in sporodochia, irregularly branched; phialides cylindrical, tapering towards the apex, 21–28 µm long, 3–4 µm wide at the base, 2–3 µm wide at the apex. Macroconidia formed by both types of conidiophores, forming flat domes of slimy masses, 1–3-septate, straight, cylindrical, with both ends obtusely rounded, base sometimes with a visible, centrally located to laterally displaced hilum; 1-septate macroconidia (22–)24–32(–36)  (5–)5.5–6.5(–7) µm (av. 28  6 µm; n = 30); 2-septate macroconidia 29–35(–40)  5–7(–8) µm (av. 32  6 µm; n = 30); and 3-septate macroconidia (33–)34.5–39.5(–43)  6–8 µm (av. 37  7 µm; n = 30).Microconidia abundant, aseptate to 1-septate, with a minutely or clearly laterally displaced hilum; aseptate microconidia oval to fusiform to globose, (5–)7.5–10.5(–12)  (3–)3.5–4.5(–5) µm (av. 9  4 µm; n = 30); 1-septate microconidia fusiform to ellipsoidal to ovoid, (12–)13.5–16.5(–19)  (3–)3.5–4.5(–6) µm (av. 15  4 µm; n = 30); microconidia formed in heads on simple conidiophores or as masses on complex conidiophores. Chlamydospores only observed on PDA and OA with none forming on SNA; globose to subglobose, 12–17 µm diam., thick-walled, intercalary, hyaline becoming brown with age.
