mycelium white, generally dense-felty, amphigenous; partly internal. Conidiophores emerge through the stomata, septate. Conidia solitary, without fibrosin bodies; the firstly formed conidia are lanceolate with a narrowed tip; the later formed conidia are oblong-elliptic. Cleistothecia rare; they contain many asci, that have two spores. Appendages usually numerous, attached below the equator, shorter than the diameter; they are mycelioid, branched sometimes near the base, another time higher up.
