Colonies growing moderately rapidly, consisting of a rather compact, flat, submerged mycelium, pale orange, locally with some powdery, brownish aerial mycelium; reverse pink to orange. Conidiophores are erect, straight, unbranched, thick-walled, reddish-brown, up to 250 µm high, gradually becoming paler towards the apex, of variable length, elongating sympodially during conidiogenesis, with scattered, pimple-shaped conidium bearing denticles which have unpigmented scars. Conidia are subhyaline, smooth-walled or slightly rough-walled, ellipsoidal, obovoidal or fusiform, 6.5-10.0 x 3-4 µm, usually with an acuminate base and unpigmented scars. RG-1 organism.
