Conidiophores ± cylindrical, short, hyaline, smooth, in a palisade lining the lower part of the conidiomatal wall. Conidiogenous cells 4.5-7 x 2.5-3 µm, terminal or intercalary, ± cylindrical to ampulliform, tapering towards a truncate apex with inconspicuous periclinal thickening, collarettes not seen. Conidia solitary, 20.5-23 x 2.5-3 µm, cylindrical, the apex rounded and the base slightly tapering with a minute scar, with large guttules, thin- and smooth-walled, without appendages or a gelatinous sheath.
