Description:Conidiomata pycnidial, globose, separate, immersed to erumpent on banana leaf agar, dark brown to black, 100–350 μm diam, exuding a globose, dark brown conidial mass. Conidiophores 0–1-septate, branched at the base, subcylindrical, mostly reduced to conidiogenous cells, hyaline, smooth, up to 30 μm tall. Conidiogenous cells integrated, ampulliform to subcylindrical, proliferating percurrently at apex, 6–20 × 3–4 μm. Conidia fusoid, straight, 4-septate, (22–)24–25(–27) × 7(–8) μm, somewhat constricted at septa, basal cell conic to obconic with truncate hilum, 3 – 5 μm long; three median cells 15 –19 μm long, doliiform, verruculose, dark brown, versicoloured, (second cell from basal cell honey brown, third cell dark brown, fourth cell honey brown, each cell 5–6 μm long); apical cell cylindri- cal, hyaline, thin and smooth-walled, 3–6 μm long, with 2–4 tubular apical appendages, each arising from different locus, swollen at tip, filiform, flexuous, unbranched, 18–45 μm long; basal appendage single, tubular, unbranched, centric, 5–10 μm long, frequently swollen at tip.
Culture characteristics — Colonies erumpent, spreading, with moderate aerial mycelium and smooth, lobate margins, covering dish after 2 wk at 25 °C. On MEA surface luteous, reverse sienna. On PDA surface dirty white, reverse ochreous. On OA surface dirty white.
