Ecology: Biotroph; phytopathogenic; growing on leaves, amphigenous. Host or Phorophyte Taxonomy: Daucus maximus Desf.; Daucus, Umbelliferae.

Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, not emerging (often in the dense mycelial felt), in loose groups (rarely) or gregarious, .17-.25 mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present (often well developed, sometimes scarce); interlaced with each other, mycelioid, straight, .2-.8 µm long, 4-10 µm in diameter, hyaline or pigmented (yellowish), few or numerous, growing all across the lower half of the ascocarp, not ramified or ramified (often irregularly branched), not branched, septate.

Asci: At least 20 asci per ascocarp, narrowly clavate (mostly), distinctly stipitate, 75-100 µm long, 25-35-(40) µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate (very numerous).

Ascospores: 1–2 per ascus, spores 2 per ascus, ellipsoid or ovoid, (25)-30-35-(40) µm long, 15-20-(25) µm wide; septa absent.

Conidiomata: Present; hyphomycetous.

Conidiophores: Oidiopsis-type; not branched. Conidium Formation: Conidiogenous cells single. Conidia: Cylindrical (with cingulum-like rings near the ends); macroconidial, not branched, 40-80 µm long, 13-20 µm wide; aseptate.
