Description:Conidiophores carried on the aerial mycelium 20–55 μm tall, unbranched, sympodial or irregularly branched, bearing terminal or lateral phialides, often reduced to single phialides; phialides mono- and polyphialidic, subulate to subcylindrical, percurrently, smooth- and thin-walled, 7–34 × 2–5 μm, with inconspicuous periclinal thickening; aerial conidia carried singly on the tips of the phialides, hyaline, falcate, curved dorsiventrally, with a blunt to slightly papillate apical cell and a notched to foot-like basal cell, smooth- and thin-walled, (1–)3–4(–5)-septate; 1-septate conidia: (16–)19–25(–26) × 3–4 μm (av. 22 × 3 μm; n = 8); 2-septate conidia: (19–)21–31 × 3–4 μm (av. 26 × 4 μm, n = 6); 3-septate conidia: (26–)31–37(–40) × 3–4 μm (av. 34 × 4 μm); 4-septate conidia: (33–)35–41(–44) × 3–4 μm (av. 38 × 4 μm); 5-septate conidia: (36–)37–41(–42) × 4 μm (av. 39 × 4 μm; n = 12). Sporodochia salmon to orange, formed abundantly on carnation leaves or the surface of the medium. Sporodochial conidiophores densely and irregularly branched, bearing apical whorls of 2–3 phialides; sporodochial phialides monophialidic, subulate to subcylindrical, proliferating percurrently, 8–14 × 2–3 μm, smooth, thin-walled, with a short flared apical collarette. Sporodochial conidia falcate, slender, curved dorsiventrally, tapering towards both ends, with a slightly elongated or whip-like curved apical cell and a foot-like to notched basal cell, (1–)2–5-septate, hyaline, thin- and smooth-walled; 1-septate conidia: (16–)18–24(–25) × 3–4 μm (av. 21 × 3 μm; n = 15); 2-septate conidia: (20–)22–26(–31) × 3–4 μm (av. 24 × 3 μm); 3-septate conidia: (25–)32–38(–42) × 3–4 μm (av. 35 × 4 μm); 4-septate: (35–)37–43(–48) × 3–4 μm (av. 40 × 4 μm); 5-septate conidia: (36–)40–46 (–49) × 3–4 μm (av. 43 × 4 μm). Chlamydospores not observed.
