CULTURES AND ANAMORPH
No cultures obtained. Anamorph found on the outer dehiscing layer of naturally-occurring stromata.
Sporulating regions olivaceous (48).
Conidiogenous structure with Periconiella-like branching pattern as defined in Ju and Rogers (1996).
Conidiophores yellowish to brownish, coarsely roughened, composed of a main axis, 4-5 mm broad, and sometimes one or more major branches, the branches terminating with three to five conidiogenous cells arising in whorls from the main axis and/or from major branches or from additional subordinate branches; additional branches infrequently produced.
Conidiogenous cells cylindrical, hyaline to yellowish, finely roughened, 10-15 x 3.5-5 mm, bearing poroid conidial secession scars on apical region, with apices becoming distorted from production of numerous conidia. Conidia produced holoblastically in sympodial sequence.
Conidia hyaline, smooth, ellipsoid, 4.5-6.5 x 2.5-3 mm, with flattened base indicating former point of attachment to conidiogenous cell.
