Description:Hyphae hyaline, septate, 1.5−2.5 μm wide smooth- and thin-walled. Conidiophores of two types i) mostly undifferentiated, unbranched or rarely laterally branched once, produced abundantly borne laterally and singly on the aerial hyphae, 0−1(−2)-septate, (12–)15–24.5(–28) × (1.5–)2–4(–7) μm, hyaline to subhyaline, smooth- and thin-walled, producing conidia on terminal polyblastic conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells polyblastic, subcylindrical to cylindrical with a swollen apical part, (1.5–)4.5–10.5(–14) × (1.5–)2–3.5(–5.5) μm hyaline to somewhat darkening at the apex, smooth- and thin-walled, with 1–8 apical conidiogenous loci. Conidia 1-celled, ovoid to broadly ellipsoidal, with a rounded to pointed apex, flat at the base, light to dark brown, (5.5–)7–9(–10.5) × (4–)5–6.5(–7) μm smooth- and thick-walled, often with a conspicuous longitudinal germ slit, borne solitary in lateral succession and forming large apical clusters; ii) unbranched, rarely branched one or two times from a short, cylindrical and swollen basal cell, mostly grouped in dense sporodochia, rarely borne solitary on the aerial hyphae 0−1-septate, 17–22(–23) × (3–)4–4.5(–5.5) μm, hyaline to subhyaline, smooth- and thin-walled, producing conidia on terminal annellidic conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells annellides, subcylindrical to cylindrical, tapering gently toward the apex, (7.5–)9.5–16(–18) × (3–)4–4.5 μm, hyaline, smooth- and thin-walled, annellations inconspicuous. Conidia catenate, 1-celled, oval, ellipsoidal to bullet-shaped, apex rounded, truncate at the base, 7.5–8.5(–10) × 4.5–5.5 μm, hyaline, smooth- and thick-walled.
