Setae solitary or in fascicles, erect, flexuous, medium brown, thick-walled, smooth, multi-septate, subcylindrical, apex obtuse, base lacking rhizoids, constricted and narrowing to where it arises from hyphae, up to 300 μm tall, 4 – 6 μm wide. Conidiophores pale brown, smooth, arranged along setae, positioned at septa, consisting of a globose basal cell, 5–7 μm diam, giving rise to 2–3 lateral branches that are 1–2-septate, with a terminal conidiogenous cell. Conidiogenous cells pale brown, smooth, terminal, subcylindrical, ends obtuse, with one to several pimple-like denticles, 0.5–1 μm long, inconspicuous, 6 – 8 × 3.5 – 4.5 μm. Conidia aseptate, pale brown, verruculose, fusoid-ellipsoid, apex acutely rounded or truncate, base truncate, 1 μm diam, in branched chains, 15–17(–19) × (3–)4 μm.
