Hyphae are septate and hyaline. Conidiophores are simple (non-branched) or branched monophialides (phialides with a single opening). Macroconidia are moderately curved, stout, thick-walled, usually 3-5 septate, measure 4-6 x up to 65 µm long, and are borne on short conidiophores that soon form sporodochia. Microconidia are borne from long monophialides, are one to three-celled, 2-5 x 8-16 µm long, and occur in false heads only (in clusters of conidia at the tip of the phialide). Chlamydoconidia are present (sometimes profuse) and occur both singly and in pairs.
