Endophytic were isolated from C. grandis cv ‘Tomentosa’ leaf. Sexual morph on PDA. Asci 30–70 × 10–20 μm, n= 50, lunt circle, hyaline, eight ascospore that were clavate. Ascospores 15–20 × 4–6 μm (x̄= 17 × 5, n= 50), hyaline, smooth-walled, aseptate, slightly curved, cylindrical with slightly sharp ends. Asexual morph on PDA. Pycnidium 60–160 × 60–200 μm (x̄ = 90 × 90, n= 30), spherical, chestnut, endophytic hyaline conidia. Conidia 10–20 × 5–7 μm (x̄= 16 × 6, n= 50), ellipsoid to stick, hyaline, smooth-walled, aseptate, the apex and base rounded. Appressoria was solitary or in loose groups, grey ollvaceous, oblong to serrated, edge integrity.
Cultural characteristics. Colonies on PDA reach 80 mm diam. in seven days at 28℃, growth rate 10–11 mm/day (x̄= 11 mm, n=6). Colonies circular, margin entire, flat, at first white and increasingly becoming dark mouse grey pigment deposition and elevation flat, colony from above: dark grey, reverse white to dull green to pale green. The culture emerged fruiting body and fulvous conidiomata at 4–6 weeks.
