Index Fungorum number: IF557166, Facesoffungi number: FoF 07313
Saprobic on decaying sliver of Bambusa sp. (Poaceae). Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 300–350 µm diam., 200–300 µm high, black, stromatic, solitary to aggregated or often confluent, semi-immersed to superficial, elongate to oval or irregular in outline, pulvinate to hysteriform in surface view, unilocular, setose. Conidiomatal wall 10–40 µm wide, composed of thick-walled, pale brown cells of textura angularis at base and sides, gradually merging with thick-walled, darker cells of textura porrecta at the periphery. Conidiomatal setae composed of two types, arising from the external textura porrecta: a) 60–250 × 3–8 μm, dark brown to black, conspicuous, subcylindrical, unbranched, septate, tapered towards the apex, rigid, thick- and smooth-walled; b) 20–80 × 1–6 μm, pale brown to brown, inconspicuous, subulate, straight or curved, unbranched, without septa, smooth-walled. Conidiophores formed from the innermost layers of conidiomata, hyaline, subcylindrical, straight or curved, branched, smooth-walled. Conidiogenous cells 6–10 × 1–2.5 µm, hyaline, lageniform to subcylindrical with moderate periclinal thickenings, straight or with slightly curved apices, discrete or integrated, smooth-walled. Conidia 4–6.5 × 1–3 µm ( = 5 × 2 µm; n = 50), hyaline, allantoid to naviculate or fusiform, rounded at apex, and narrowed and truncate at base, guttulate, bearing unbranched appendages, filiform, flexuous, tubular at both ends (1–3µm long).
