Description:Conidiomata sporodochial, black with slimy conidial masses, surrounded by dark brown setae; conidiomata up to 300 μm diam, basal stroma of hyaline textura epidermoidea, giving rise to a dense complex of conidiophores and setae. Setae flexuous, surrounding sporodochium, unbranched, thick-walled, apex obtuse, dark brown, verruculose to warty, multiseptate, 100–200 × 6–9 μm. Conidiophores densely aggregated, arising from hyaline basal stroma, becoming pigmented and verruculose towards conidiogenous region, subcylindrical, 2–5-septate, branched, 25–60 × 3–4 μm. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal and lateral, subcylindrical, becoming pigmented and verruculose at upper region, proliferating percurrently, 10 –17 × 3 – 4 μm. Conidia solitary, cylindrical, straight, apex subobtuse, base truncate, 1–1.5 μm diam, aseptate, guttulate, granular, verruculose, olivaceous brown, (8–)9–11(–12) × (2–)2.5–3 μm.

Culture characteristics — Colonies erumpent, spreading, with moderate aerial mycelium and smooth, lobate margins, reaching 40 mm diam after 2 wk at 25 °C. On MEA surface dirty white, reverse amber. On PDA surface and reverse pale luteous. On OA surface pale luteous.
