The type material of Rosellinia sublimbata does not have a pronounced hyaline sheath on the ascospores. However, the conspicuousness of the hyaline sheath in this species significantly varies among different collections. Nonetheless, it is also an indication that it is a species complex; this is corroborated by the differences between the cultures and anamorphs reported by Petrini (1993) and Ju and Rogers (1994).
