Description:Mycelium consisting of hyaline, smooth, branched, septate, 2–3 μm diam hyphae. Conidiophores erect, hyaline, smooth, subcylindrical, straight to flexuous, unbranched, thick-walled, 1–3-septate, 20–50 × 4–5 μm. Conidiogenous cells terminal, integrated, subcylindrical with apical taper, 15–30 × 3–4 μm; apical part forming a rachis with numerous aggregated cylindrical denticles, 1–3 × 1 μm; scars cicatrized, not thickened nor darkened, refractive if viewed from above. Conidia solitary, aggregating in slimy mass, fusoid-ellipsoid, hyaline, smooth, surrounded by a thin mucilaginous sheath, prominently guttulate, medianly 1-septate, apex subobtuse, base truncate, 1–1.5 μm diam, somewhat refractive, (20 –) 22 – 27(– 33) × (3–)3.5(–4) μm.

Culture characteristics — Colonies erumpent, spreading, surface folded, with moderate aerial mycelium and smooth, lobate margins, reaching 20 mm diam after 2 wk at 25 °C. On MEA and PDA surface amber to isabelline, reverse isabelline. On OA surface amber to isabelline, reverse hazel.
