Subperithecial tissue an ill-defined t. intricata of thin-walled hyaline hyphae (2–)3–8(–12) μm (n = 31) wide. Asci (57–)62–80(–93) × (3.3–)4.0–5.0(–5.3) μm; stipe (3–)4–16(–25) μm long (n = 70), with two basal septa. Ascospores hyaline, finely verruculose or spinulose; cells dimorphic, distal cell (2.7–)3.0–3.5(–4.0) × (2.3–)2.8–3.2(–3.5) μm, l/w (0.9–)1.0–1.2(–1.5) (n = 120), (sub)KU-60019 concentration globose, proximal
cell (3.0–)3.4–4.2(–5.0) × (2.0–)2.4–2.8(–3.0) μm, l/w (1.1–)1.3–1.6(–1.9) (n = 120), oblong, wedge-shaped or subglobose; contact area usually distinctly flattened. selleckchem Cultures and anamorph: optimal growth at 25°C on all media; at 30°C death of hyphae observed after short growth; no growth at 35°C. The values given below are from a single experiment. On CMD 6–7 mm at 15°C, 12 mm at 25°C, 3 mm at 30°C after 72 h; mycelium covering the plate after 16 days at 25°C. Colony circular, hyaline, thin, dense, finely zonate; margin well defined or slightly wavy, hyphae distinctly sinuous. Margin becoming downy and whitish due to conidiation. Aerial hyphae inconspicuous. No autolytic excretions noted, coilings infrequent. No chlamydospores seen. No diffusing pigment noted. Odour indistinct or slightly unpleasant, ‘chemical’. Conidiation noted after 3 days, colourless to white, effuse, farinose, floccose or cottony,
on short, mostly 50–150(–250) R406 mw μm long, simple, verticillium-like conidiophores erect on surface hyphae; similar conidiophores also 30–120 μm long formed widely spaced on aerial hyphae to 1 mm long; conidiophores with more complex branching in loose shrubs along the margin. After several months at 15°C sometimes white, pachybasium-like pustules to ca 1 mm diam appearing along margin. Pustules not examined. Structure of conidiophores determined after Forskolin datasheet 5–7 days; consisting of a straight stipe or axis with a single terminal whorl of phialides or with solitary phialides or 1–2 whorls of 3–5(–6) phialides along its length; sometimes with few paired or unpaired branches in right angles or slightly inclined upwards, each with 1–3 whorls of
phialides. Branches straight, less commonly sinuous. Conidiophores 3–6 μm wide at the base, 2–3 μm at the apex. Phialides solitary or more commonly divergent in whorls of 2–5 on cells 2–3.5 μm wide. Conidia formed in minute wet heads to 10(–15) μm diam. Phialides (7–)10–17(–26) × (2.0–)2.4–3.0(–3.7) μm, l/w (2.2–)3.6–6.4(–8.8), (1.5–)1.7–2.4(–3.3) (n = 65) wide at the base, lageniform or subulate, straight or slightly curved, narrow, mostly symmetric, widest in or below the middle. Conidia (2.9–)3.2–5.5(–8.3) × (1.9–)2.2–3.4(–5.4) μm, l/w (0.8–)1.2–2(–2.8) (n = 84), hyaline, variable, ellipsoidal or oblong, smooth, with few guttules, scar indistinct, sometimes pointed or truncate. On PDA 8 mm at 15°C, 18 mm at 25°C, 1–2 mm at 30°C after 72 h; mycelium covering the plate after 4 weeks at 25°C.
