Help! Not even sure where to start with this one as it is an anamorph. Microscopically the white clusters seen in the photo contain prolific amounts of conidia born on flasked-shaped phialides in large clusters that were hard to resolve under 100x oil immersion lens. Conidia were 2-3 microns wide and spherical.
