there is indeed a similarity to the image you link. also looks pretty promising given my brief skimming of the Sullivan article. Alas, ascus, ascospore and conidial characteristics appear to be some of the main diagnostic features of this genus. i have collected a few such fungi from South America, so at least my own microscopic observations will be a matter of when and not if, though that’s not really saying much…
