Etymology – Name reflects a rapid growth rate in culture.

Mycelium consisting of hyaline, smooth-walled hyphae, lacking chlamydospores. Conidia formed on hyphal cells and in pycnidia. Conidiophores on hyphae often reduced to conidiogenous cells; if not, then 2–3-celled, unbranched. Conidiogenous cells enteroblastic, rarely occurring as discrete phialides, mostly reduced to adelophialides or more often with collarettes formed directly on hyphal cells; collarettes distinct, cylindrical. Conidia aggregated in masses around the hyphae, hyaline, aseptate, sometimes septate when very large, cylindrical, with one end obtuse and the other end attenuated; smooth-walled, some times biguttulate with tiny droplets. Conidiomata pycnidial, solitary, subglobose, superficial, unilocular, opening by irregular rupture, with wall composed of brown textura angularis. Conidiophores hyaline, branched and septate. Conidiogenous cells enteroblastic, hyaline, consisting of discrete phialides that are ampulliform to conical, with cylindrical collarettes. Conidia hyaline, 1-celled, cylindrical, sometimes slightly curved, with both ends obtuse, smooth-walled, sometimes biguttulate with tiny droplets.
