General Description

 Colonies. Reaching 1.7 cm diam. in ten days at 20°C on oat meal agar. Anamorph. Comprising scanty "arthro-aleurioconidia". Ascomata. Initials consisting of two equal coiled gametangia. Peridial hyphae present or absent. Asci. Scattered in orange to red patches throughout the aerial mycelium. Ascospores. Yellow to orange, oblate with two equatorial rims separated by a furrow, smooth-walled, 5.5-7.0 × 4.0-5.0 μm. SEM studies show the ascospores to have a fine wart-like ornamentation. The pigmentation and equatorial rims of the ascospores distinguish this species from others of its genus.
