 Description: Colonies on Oatmeal Agar effuse, to somewhat floccose, olivaceous brown to dark brown; reverse olivaceous brown to dark olivaceous brown. Mycelium partly superficial, partly immersed, composed of branched, occasionally anastomosing, septate, smooth, subhyaline or pale brown, 1.2-2.4 μm wide hyphae. Conidiophores semimacronematous to macronematous, terminal to lateral, mostly simple, rarely branched, straight to flexuous or sinuous, smooth, subhyaline to pale brown, 10.4-44.0 × 2.2-3.2 μm. Conidiogenous cells integrated, cylindrical, monoblastic, proliferating sympodially. Conidia solitary, acrogenous or pleurogenous, branched, consisting of a constricted, 1-septate, 14.4-22.4 × 5.5-8.4 μm major axis and 2-3 divergent (or sometimes irregularly branched), cylindrical or elongated-clavate, constricted, 2-11-septate, 13.6-106.0 × 3.7-9.0 μm, smooth, pale brown or brown simultaneous apical arms; often with a hilum 1.2-4.4 × 1.8-3.2 μm at the base.
