Stroma poorly developed, hyaline, of a textura angularis. Setae sparse, sinuous, unbranched, hyaline to subhyaline, verrucose, 30–50 µm long, 2 µm wide, terminating in a blunt apex. Conidiophores arising from the basal stroma, consisting of a stipe and a penicillately branched conidiogenous apparatus; stipes unbranched hyaline, smooth, septate, 10–24 × 2–3 µm; primary branches aseptate, unbranched, smooth, 8–11 × 2–3 µm; secondary branches aseptate, unbranched, smooth, 9–13 × 2 µm; terminating in a whorl of 2–4 conidiogenous cells; conidiogenous cells phialidic, cylindrical to subcylindrical, hyaline, smooth, straight to slightly curved, 8–15 × 2–3 µm, with conspicuous collarettes and periclinical thickenings. Conidia aseptate, longitudinally striate, olivaceous green to brown, fusiform to ellipsoidal to undulate, (5–)6–8(–9) × 2–3 µm (av. 7 × 2 µm), with a distinct apical hilum.
