Phialophores setiform, straight or flexuous, septate, smooth, brown, with 3-4 branches at the apex, fertile from middle up to first dichotomy branch at the apex. Phialides obscured by a shield of sterile cells. Phialospores, 1-septate, falcate, simple, smooth, hyaline, produced in slimy masses (Pizozynski, 1968; Yang et al., 2018).
