Mycelium consists of pale to medium brown, smooth to finely verruculose, branched hyphae. Conidiophores integrated, terminal on hyphae, aseptate or septate, mostly reduced to conidiogenous cells, also lateral, visible as small, protruding, denticle-like loci. Conidiogenous cells subcylindrical, pale to medium brown, smooth to finely verruculose, tapering to several apical indistinct loci. Ramoconidia present. Conidia pale brown, smooth, guttulate, subcylindrical to narrowly ellipsoid, occurring

in simple or branched chains, aseptate or septate, tapering to- wards subtruncate ends; hila mostly inconspicuous, i.e., rarely thickened or darkened-refractive (adapted from Crous et al. 2007b).
