However, they differ in the lack of velar remnants on pileus margin, basidiospores slightly smaller with a reduced germ pore
, lack of cheilochrysocystidia, and pileipellis with a thick gelatinized layer (Noordeloos, 2011).
The genus Thielavia is restricted to Pyrenomycetes characterized by non ostiolate ascomata and ascospores with a simple distinct germ pore although C.

The mature pollen grains contained two cells in mid-May and formed an approximate equilateral triangle with three germ pores (Figs.
The pollen grains are monocolpate and two-celled with three germ pores at shedding.
The ascospores of this fungus consist of ascospores with two germ pores and extruded in a mass or as cirrhi.
bartlettii grows faster than Kernia species, produces elongated asci and larger ascospores with prominent germ pores, and lacks an annellophore conidial state.
