Description:Colonies on host floccose, white. Mycelium consisting of hyaline, smooth, branched, 1.5–2 µm diam hyphae. Conidiophores developing from hyaline stromata aggregated but loose (in culture commonly forming sporodochia, up to 300 µm diam, with slimy conidial masses developing with age), subcylindrical, erect, flexuous, branched below, septate, up to 100 µm tall, 1.5–3 µm diam. Conidiogenous cells terminal or intercalary, subcylindrical, smooth, hyaline, 5–15 × 2–3 µm, polyblastic, containing one to several denticle-like loci, 1–3 × 1 µm, not thickened nor darkened. Conidia (10–)17–26(–32) × (2.5–)3(–3.5) µm (excluding appendage), hyaline, 1–3-septate, thin-walled, smooth, fusiform, slightly curved with prominent taper towards apex, unbranched, (3–)5–7(–12) µm long; conidia undergoing microcyclic conidiation in culture; hila unthickened, truncate, 1 µm diam. Culture characteristics — Colonies spreading, erumpent, surface folded, with sparse to moderate aerial mycelium, and feathery margins, reaching 35 mm diam after 1 mo at 25 ºC. On OA surface greyish green to bluish; on MEA surface dirty white, reverse isabelline; on PDA surface dirty white in centre, isabelline in outer region and in reverse.
