from cushion shaped cells. Spores, if reticulated, appear to
be composed of several tightly compacted cells)

27a Spores large, exceeding 5 microns in diameter, and of two
types. Some spherical and spiny, forming singly at the end of
individual hyphal branches; others vase shaped arising singly

or in loose clusters from an indistinct, hyphal-like conidiophore)

(pencillate))
