Ecology: Biotroph; phytopathogenic; growing on stems or leaves, amphigenous. Host or Phorophyte Taxonomy: Arctium lappa L.; Arctium, Compositae.

Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, .08-.145 mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present (mostly shorter than the cleistothecial diam.); interlaced with each other or interwoven with surrounding mycelium, mycelioid, straight, .5-2 µm long, 4-8 µm in diameter, hyaline or faintly pigmented (brown throughout when fully mature), numerous (mostly), growing all across the lower half of the ascocarp, smooth, thin, not ramified, septate.

Asci: 5-12-(20) asci per ascocarp, distinctly stipitate, (40)-60-90 µm long, (20)-30-55 µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate.

Ascospores: 1–2 or c. 4 per ascus, spores 2-(4) per ascus, subglobose, ellipsoid, or ovoid, 20-32 µm long, 13-20 µm wide; septa absent.

Conidiomata: Present; hyphomycetous.

Conidiophores: Euoidium-type; not branched; basal cells 80-190 µm long, 10-15 µm wide. Conidium Formation: Conidiogenous cells in chains. Conidia: Ellipsoid, ovoid, doliiform, or citriform (sometimes); macroconidial (germ tubes at an end or side of the conidium, long and narrow, apex without appressorium), not branched, 25-50 µm long, 18-30 µm wide; aseptate.
