Coniodophores simple, erect, stiff and bristle-like at first, later branching from near the apex almost at right angles to the main rhachis ( a main axis or shaft), deep fuscous below, lighter above. Conidia pleurogenous, on bladder-like projections, produced laterally on the lower parts of the conidiophores, dilute yellow in mass, the filament indistinctly 12-20 times septate, 3-times coiled, 1-2 um in diameter; diameter of coiled conidium 16-19 um.
