Saprobic on the resin of plant hosts. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Sexual morph: Conidiophore mononematous or synnematous and arising from dark brown subiculum. Synnemata scattered or gregarious, dark brown to black, often splayed at the base but with a compact cylindrical stipe, and a compact, dry, ellipsoidal conidial head. Hyphae of stipe infrequently branched, brown to dark brown, septate. Conidiogenous cells terminal or in pairs at the ends of the stipe hyphae, cylindrical with a truncate base. Conidia in sparingly branched acropetal chains, oblong-ellipsoidal, fusiform, brown, aseptate, rarely septate, secession scars available, smooth-walled, sometimes adjacent conidia anastomosing, ramoconidia infrequent, usually with just two emerging chains, conidial chains appressed and more or less parallel (Crous et al. 2019a).
