Holotypus: MFLU 14–0746

Saprobic on branch of Clematis vitalba. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 425–475 μm diam., 220–270 μm high, pycnidial, superficial, black, gregarious, unilocular, but occasionally multi-locular, with a papillate ostiole. Pycnidial wall 30–55 μm wide, thick at outer layer, brown to dark brown, with 4–10 cell layers, inner layer hyaline, 3–5 cell layers, cells of textura angularis. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells 3–5 × 1–3 μm, simple, smooth, hyaline, integrated, enteroblastic, phialidic. Conidia 11–15 × 2–4 μm (x̄ = 12.71 × 2.95 μm, n = 20), slightly brown, straight to curve, continuous, with truncate base, with obtuse apex, 3-euseptate, often slightly narrower in the middle, smooth-walled, guttulate.

Culture characters: on PDA white from above and greyish white from reverse, cottony, circular, zonate, slow growing, attaining a diam. of 1.5 cm in 7 days at 18 °C.
