First publication: van Geel, B. (1978) A palaeoecological study of Holocene peat bog sections in Germany and the Netherlands, based on the analysis of pollen, spores and macro- and microscopic remains of fungi, algae cormophytes and anymals. Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 25, 1–120

Other publication/s: No information

Description: Conidia or chlamydospores, outline slightly undulate, 19–36 × 4–5 µm. Most conidia truncate at both ends: sometimes two conidia joined by their truncate ends. Few conidia truncate at one end and apically rounded, probably the first ones formed in a series.

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: The fungus has grown under dry conditions after the drainage of the peat bog and the disappearance of the upper peat layer burned off for buckwheat cultivation.

Co-occurence: No information

Modern occurence: No information

Palaeoenvironmental indication: Maybe dry conditions
