Description:Mycelium consisting of branched, septate, smooth, pale brown, 1.5–2 µm diam hyphae. Conidiophores dimorphic, arising from hyphae. Microconidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells, erect, pale to medium brown, 7–20 × 3–4 µm. Macroconidiophores erect, straight to flexuous, 1–4-septate, 40–90 × 2.5–3 µm, unbranched, medium brown, smooth, basal cell lacking rhizoids, 4–7 µm diam. Conidiogenous cells terminal, integrated, pale to medium brown, smooth, containing whorls of denticle-like loci in swollen regions of the conidiogenous cell, denticles 0.5 µm long, 1 µm diam, darkened and somewhat refractive, 20–40 × 2–3 µm. Conidia solitary, fusoid-ellipsoid, medianly 1-septate, guttulate, pale to medium brown, covered in muricate ornamentation, (9–)13–14(–15) × (4–)5 µm; basal hilum darkened, refractive and thickened. Culture characteristics — Colonies reaching 7 mm diam after 2 wk at 22 ºC. On MEA surface erumpent, with sparse aerial mycelium, lobed margins; surface olivaceous-grey, reverse iron-grey. On OA pale olivaceous-grey with diffuse red zone. On PDA pale olivaceous-grey.
