Description:Conidiophores carried on aerial mycelium 30–50 μm tall, unbranched or rarely verticillately branched, bearing a whorl of 2–4 phialides, sometimes reduced to a single lateral phialide or phialidic peg; aerial phialides monophialidic, subulate to subcylindrical, smooth- and thin-walled, 12–22 × 3–5 μm, periclinal thickening inconspicuous. Aerial conidia carried singly on the tips of the phialides, hyaline, falcate, curved dorsiventrally, with a blunt to slightly papillate or elongated apical cell and a blunt to barely notched or foot-like basal cell, smooth- and thin-walled, 1–5-septate; 1-septate conidia: (22–)26–34(–38) × 4–6 μm (av. 30 × 5 μm); 2-septate conidia: (32–)34–40(–43) × 5–6 μm (av. 37 × 5 μm; n = 19); 3-septate conidia: (29–)34–46(–52) × 4–6 μm (av. 40 × 5 μm); 4-septate conidia: (40–)41–49(–51) × 4–6 μm (av. 45 × 5 μm; n = 12); 5-septate conidia: (42–)46–54(–57) × 4–6 μm (av. 50 × 5 μm). Sporodochia peach to saffron, formed abundantly on carnation leaves and media surface. Sporodochial conidiophores densely and irregularly branched, bearing apical whorls of 2–3 phialides; sporodochial phialides monophialidic, subulate to subcylindrical, 10–19 × 3–5 μm, smooth-walled to slightly roughened, thin-walled, with a short flared apical collarette. Sporodochial conidia falcate, slender, curved dorsiventrally, tapering towards both ends, with a elongate or whip-like curved apical cell and a foot-like to notched basal cell, 3–5-septate, hyaline, thin- and smooth-walled; 3-septate conidia: (32–)39–51(–55) × 4–5 μm (av. 45 × 5 μm); 4-septate conidia: (45–)48–54(–57) × 4–6 μm (av. 51 × 5 μm); 5-septate conidia: (50–)52–58(–64) × 4–6 μm (av. 55 × 5 μm). Chlamydospores abundant, globose to subglobose, subhyaline, smooth- to slightly rough-walled, terminal or intercalarily, solitary or in pairs forming chains, 6–12 μm diam.
