Microconidia were abundant and hypha was septate in clusters with mono- and polyphialidic conidiogenous cells arising laterally from aerial hyphae.
Needle mounts in lactophenol cotton blue exhibited rough conidiophores with uniseriate and biseriate conidiogenous cells covering the entire vesicle.
2) in small, loose to dense fascicles, occasionally solitary, arising from internal hyphae or hyphal aggregations, erumpent through the cuticle or emerging through stomata, erect, subcylindrical to geniculate-sinuous, often denticulate, simple, rarely branched, 10-70 X 3-8 [micro]m, continuous to 1-3-septate, pale olivaceous, olivaceous-brown to brown, wall thin to slightly thickened, smooth of almost so; conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal of conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells, 10-25 [micro]m long; conidiogenous loci conspicuous, often denticle-like, apex truncate, 1.
The conidiogenous cells from the initial slide culture, held 7 days and prepared from a PFA block, consisted predominately of single, long, tapering phialides, somewhat atypical for the species.
