USA, Louisiana, near Walker, Livingston Parish, on a log, 23 Aug. 1960, C. T. Rogerson 60-189, NY, anamorph and immature teleomorph.Notes: Characteristic of Cladobotryum cubitense would be the comparatively long, narrow, clavate, mainly 3-septate conidia that happen to be held horizontally in the tip from the conidiogenous cell. Indicative from the formation of conidia in lengthy imbricate chains will be the hila, typically observed at the side in the conidia, close to the base. The much more conidia are made from a single locus, the reduced, wider and more laterally placed become the hila on the successive conidia. In most isolates part of the conidia are curved. Dinstinctive of the species are also the pale ochraceou.
