Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, erect, septate, sparsely branched, pale brown, arising directly on substrate, glistening, light-coloured, smooth-walled, fertile below half, remaining sterile above the half. Conidiogenous cells monoblastic, holoblastic, integrated, with lateral minute denticles each with single conidium. Conidia helicoid, with conidial filament, tightly to loosely coiled, rounded at apical end, pale brown, multi-septate, smooth-walled, guttulate.
