Hyphae of basal mycelium 3-5 [micro]m diam, hyaline, thick-walled (wall up to 0.5 [micro]m thick), conspicuously clamped, straight, parallel, not adherent; walls weakly cyanophilous; ampulliform swelling usually as inflated clamp connections, occasionally as abrupt, lateral, subbulbous hyphal protuberances, not unusually thick-walled, unornamented, usually elongate barrel-shaped; echinulate hyphae not observed.
Hyphae of rhizomorphs hyaline, thick-walled (wall up to 0.5 [micro]m thick), conpicuously clamped, relatively straight, not agglutinated or adherent, tightly packed, involved in copious crystalline deposits; medullary hyphae smooth, with common ampulliform clamp connections; cortical hyphae often minutely spiculate (spicules less than 0.5 [micro]m high, slender, sharp, cyanophilous), with more crystalline incrustation than medullary hyphae; ampulliform clamps overshot, tibiiform to aliiform, up to 14 [micro]m broad, thick-walled (wall up to 1.2 [micro]m thick), unornamented.
