Conidiogenous cells hyaline, subcylindrical with collarette present and not flared and prominent periclinal thickening. It has only alpha conidia hyaline, oblong to ellipsoid with apex bluntly rounded and base obtuse (Gomes et al., 2013).

It is a rare species, with only two occurrences in the world. More studies need to be done to learn more about its ecology and distribution, so I suggest including it in Deficient Data.
