Filiform to long-fusiform multiseptate ascospores disarticulating at the septum within the ascus into multiple part-ascospores

your spores = not disarticulated
Moelleriella spores = disarticulated

I have Chaverri Key for Moelleriella, see a micro photo of Ascospores and Conidia.

shows much less than large ones would.

I take it you arrived at this name via this publication:

http://www.studiesinmycology.org/...

If not, I’d recommend giving it a good read, possibly running your specimen through one or more of the keys, such as this one:

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) ?m long; conidia (10-)12-25(-30) ?m long, fusoid……………………………………. Hypocrella/Aschersonia
2’. Ascospores (90-)100-120(-130) ?m long; conidia (4-)1.5-6(-7) ?m long, almost allantoid……………………………………………. Samuelsia

Even getting to genus — and certainly to species — is, unsurprisingly, a matter of matching microcharacters. If you scoped this, it would greatly behoove you to list your observations somewhere on the page, preferably in the “Based on microscopic features” checkbox of the name proposal. If you didn’t, your ID is a bold one for such a diverse and taxonomically challenging group of fungi.

Yes, the small photo edited shows a multiple conidioma, a unusual form of M. epiphylla.

3cm x 3cm photos are useless. why are you using them?

as a side note: you may want to include the information following each of your “about ____” comments in the Notes section of the observation. that way it will always be visible at the top of the page.
