Ecology: Biotroph; phytopathogenic; growing on stems, leaves, or petioles (sometimes), amphigenous. Host or Phorophyte Taxonomy: Aquilegia vulgaris L.; Aquilegia, Ranunculaceae.

Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, scattered or gregarious, (.065)-.075-.115-(.125) mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present (rather coarse, horizontally spread, rather straight or somewhat undulate-geniculate); mycelioid, straight, (1)-3-12 µm long, (3.5)-4.5-9-(10) µm in diameter, pigmented (brown throughout when mature, or paler upwards), few or numerous (number variable), (4)-10-30-(50) per mm², growing at the ascocarp base, all across the lower half of the ascocarp, or between the lower and upper hald of the ascocarp, flexuose or geniculate (bent) (rather straight or somewhat undulate-geniculate), smooth or faintly rough (sometimes), thin, not ramified or ramified, sub dichotomously branched (occasionally, 1(-2)-times), septate.

Asci: (2)-3-8-(12) asci per ascocarp, not stipitate or indistinctly stipitate, 40-70-(80) µm long, 25-45-(55) µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate.

Ascospores: 1–2, c. 4, or c. 8 per ascus, spores (2)-3-5-(6) per ascus, ellipsoid or ovoid, 16-25.5 µm long, 9-15 µm wide; septa absent; wall thin, hyaline (or faintly yellowish).

Conidiomata: Present; hyphomycetous.

Conidiophores: Pseudoidium-type; not branched; basal cells (15)-20-38 µm long, 7-11 µm wide. Conidium Formation: Conidiogenous cells single. Conidia: Ellipsoid, ovoid, or sub-cylindrical; macroconidial (germ tubes usually on an end, short to moderately long, simple or terminating with a lobed appressorium), not branched, (25)-28-50 µm long, (12)-18-22-(24) µm wide; aseptate.
