Braun U., Beih. Nova Hedwigia 89: 1-700 [118-119] (1987).

Biogeography: Continent: Northern America (USA, Canada). Region(s): North-western U.S.A., North-eastern U.S.A., and South-western U.S.A.

Ecology: Biotroph; phytopathogenic; growing on stems or leaves, amphigenous. Host or Phorophyte Taxonomy: Polemoniaceae.

Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, scattered or gregarious (often densely aggregated, forming dark brown patches or coats), (.065)-.07-.1-(.11) mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present; interlaced with each other or interwoven with surrounding mycelium, mycelioid (with constrictions, width irregular), .25-3 µm long, 4-11 µm in diameter, hyaline or sparsely pigmented (yellowish, sometimes pale brown), few or numerous, growing all across the lower half of the ascocarp, smooth or somewhat rough, thin, not ramified or ramified (seldom irregularly branched), septate.

Asci: Sub-globose, not stipitate, 50-80 µm long, 45-75 µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate.

Ascospores: c. 8 per ascus, spores 6-8 per ascus, subglobose, ellipsoid (oblong, shape and size of the spores variable), or nearly cylindrical, (14)-16-24 µm long, 10-17 µm wide; septa absent.

Conidiomata: Present; hyphomycetous.

Conidiophores: Not branched; basal cells 80-100 µm long, 11-15 µm wide. Conidium Formation: Conidiogenous cells in chains. Conidia: Ellipsoid, ovoid, or doliiform; macroconidial, 20-30 µm long, 12.5-20 µm wide.
