First publication: Gelorini, V., Verbeken, A., van Geel, B., Cocqyt, C. and Vershuren, D. (2011) Modern non-pollen palynomorphs from East African lake sediments. Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 164, 143–173

Other publication/s: No information

Description: Ascospores ellipsoid, inequilaterally one-celled, 18–21 × 7–9 µm, yellow, smooth, slightly thick-walled and with nearly rounded ends; two spiral germ slits running over the entire spore-length each at one side. This morphotype, which resembles EMA-55 (apart from the presence of one spiral germ slit), is probably affiliated with the Xylariaceae.
