Description:Colonies on PDA 40–45 mm diam. after 8 weeks, felty, slightly raised, margin entire, yellow-green to dark gray. Reverse yellow-green to dark green. Colonies on SNA 45–51 mm diam. after 8 weeks, compact, aerial mycelia sparse, margin fimbriate, white to dark green. Reverse dark green. Vegetative hyphae hyaline to pale brown, septate, branched, thin- and smooth-walled. Ascomata dark brown to black, immersed, globose or subglobose, 200–330 µm diam., 210–310 µm high, with unconspicuous ostiole. Peridia of textura angularis, olive green, appendages lacking. Asci ovate, globose or subglobose, 8-spored, 7.0–10.5 × 6.0–7.5 µm. Ascospores triangular to lunate, hyaline to pale red-brown, 3.0–4.5 × 2.0–3.0 µm (mean = 3.8 ± 0.3 × 2.7 ± 0.2 µm, n = 25). Conidiophores arising from hyphae, straight or flexuous, septate, occasionally branched one or two times, smooth, hyaline to pale brown. Conidiogenous cells solitary on aerial hyphae, or in whorls of 2–3 on apex of conidiophores, hyaline to pale brown, ampulliform, cylindrical, slightly curved, 3.0–6.0 (–8.5) × 1.5–2.5 µm. Conidia in a long chain, brown, thick-walled, ellipsoidal, 4.0–6.0 × 2.0–2.5 µm (mean = 5.4 ± 0.4 × 2.1 ± 0.1 µm, n = 30), with truncated base and median longitudinal germ slit.
