Description:No sexual morph or chlamydospores observed. Mycelium consisting of hyaline, septate, branched, 2–4 µm diam hyphae. Conidiogenous cells subcylindrical, hyaline, smooth, unbranched, erect, slightly tapering towards apex with an inconspicuous collarette, (17.5–)30–55(–65) × 1.5–3 µm, 0(–1)-septate. Conidia formed in slimy heads at apices of conidiogenous cells, aseptate, ellipsoidal to fusoid, occasionally curved, smooth, (6–)7–11(–13) × (1.5–)2.5–3.5(–4.5) µm, mean ± standard deviation 8.5 ± 1.6 × 3.0 ± 0.5.

Culture characteristics — Colony diam, 7 d, in mm: PDA 16–23 (25 °C); PDA (30 °C) 18–25; PDA (37 °C) 8–13; MEA (25 °C) 16–22; SNA (25 °C) 20–25.
PDA, 25 °C: Colonies low convex; sporulation profuse; aerial mycelium present in centre, white; soluble pigments in agar orange-brown; margin slightly irregular; conidia en masse orange-pink; reverse orange-brown in centre, margin pale orange-brown. MEA, 25 °C: Colonies centrally elevated, slightly radially and concentric sulcate; sporulation poor; mycelium white to pale brown, synnematously bundled; soluble pigments absent; margin slightly irregular; conidial colour inconspicuous; reverse reddish brown. OA, 25 °C: Colonies effuse; sporulation moderate; mycelium white; aerial mycelium absent; conidia en masse pink-orange, in centre; reverse red-brown.
