Anamorph: Acremonium-like. Colonies 6–15 mm diam. after 14 d. at 25 C on PDA, cottony with rosy-buff aerial mycelium, reverse concolorous. Sporulation on SNA usually abundant, arising directly from agar surface. Conidiophores generally simple, unbranched. Conidiogenous cells 36–53 µm long, width at base 1.5–2 µm, width at tip 1–1.3 µm, cylindrical, collarette not flared, hyaline, proliferating percurrently from a single apical locus. Conidia 4.6–6.7 x 1.2–2 µm, cylindrical, aseptate, smooth, hyaline, without a gelatinous sheath or appendages. Teleomorph: stromata absent. Ascomata perithecia, 170–200 x 150–180 µm, solitary, superficial, subglobose with a discoidal apex, collapsing laterally when dry, scarlet, smooth-walled. Interascal tissue absent at maturity. Asci 54–66 x 5.5–7 µm, cylindrical to slightly clavate, 8-spored. Ascospores arranged uniseriately, 6.5–8.5 x 3–4 µm, ellipsoidal, slightly constricted at the single median septum, smooth, hyaline, thin-walled, without a gelatinous sheath or appendages.
