Key to genera treated
1. Filiform to long-fusiform multiseptate ascospores disarticulating at the septum within the ascus into multiple part-ascospores; stromata
KOH- ………………………………………………………….Moelleriella
1’. Filiform to long-fusiform multiseptate ascospores that do not disarticulate; stromata generally KOH+ …………………………………………………………………….2

2. Ascospores (50–)75–120(–170) μm long; conidia (10–)12–25(–30) μm long, fusoid ……………………………………………Hypocrella/Aschersonia
2’. Ascospores (90–)100–120(–130) μm long; conidia (4–)1.5–6(–7) μm long, almost allantoid …………………………………….Samuelsia

microscopy for next time…

a much longer dichotomous key follows covering anamorphic and teleomorphic expressions of each of these four genera, but the primary distinction is first a microscopic one.

apparently these are entomopathogens on whiteflies and scale insects as well.
