Description: Ascospore, oval, one-septate, distinctly constricted at the septum, septum not thicker than the wall, without surface ornamentation, brown, septum dark brown, 41.1 × 22.3 μm. KIU-122 is probably a representative of the family Asterinaceae, including genera with similar-looking ascospores, such as Trichasterina and Pycnocarpon (Doilom et al. 2018; Hongsanan et al. 2014).

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: In terrestrial deposits

Co-occurence: No information

Modern occurence: Species of Asterinaceae are associated with living leaves, stems and fruits, and senescent and decaying plant material (von Arx and Müller 1975; Hofmann 2010). They are plant parasites, or symbiotic and possibly saprotrophic, with a worldwide distribution.

Palaeoenvironmental indication: May be associated with the presence of senescent and decaying plant material
