Etymology: The epithet refers to the thickened and darkened conidial hila.

Mycelium consisting of smooth to finely roughened, pale to medium brown, branched, septate hyphae, sometimes frequently forming hyphal coils. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous

cells that are terminal or lateral on hyphae, medium brown, smooth, cylindrical or subcylindrical, erect to subdenticulate, or more distinct, mono- to polyblastic; conidiogenous loci flat-tipped, somewhat darkened and thickened, but not refractive. Ramo-

conidia present, aseptate or septate. Conidia formed in branched or unbranched chains, pale to medium brown, smooth, sub- cylindrical, 0 – 3-septate, slightly tapering towards the sub- truncate ends, straight, but at times slightly curved; hila somewhat darkened and thickened, not refractive (adapted from Crous et al. 2007b, Koukol 2010).
