Appressoria nipple-shaped. cleistothecia amphigenous; appendages numerous, resembling ordinary hyphae, more or less brown, mostly shorter than the cleistothecial diameter. Up to 20 asci per cleistothecium, with generally 2 spores.

notes

G. macrocarpus on Artemisia is difficult to separate from G. artemisiae. The most practical difference is in the colour of the appendages; almost hyaline in artemisiae, almost all brown in macrocarpus.
