Specimens of H. phellinicola are often contaminated with other Trichoderma spp., e.g. T. harzianum or T. cerinum (three specimens). The pigment formed in culture is similar to that of H. citrina, although on PDA it only formed at 15°C and on CMD only after extended storage at 15°C. Hypocrea selleck compound protopulvinata Yoshim.

Scale bars a–d = 15 mm. e = 0.2 mm. f, i, j, n = 30 μm. g, h = 50 μm. k, m, o, Mannose-binding protein-associated serine protease s = 20 μm. l, p, q = 15 μm. r = 80 μm. t–v = 10 μm Stromata when fresh extending over 0.2–20 cm, to 2 mm thick, mostly dependent on the host, widely effuse, less frequently small and subpulvinate, mostly on and often covering nearly the entire hymenium of the host, less commonly spreading to its upper surface. Surface smooth, ostiolar dots first diffuse and olive to amber, later more distinct and brown. Stromata whitish to pale yellowish when young; turning citrine or shades of yellow, sometimes with an olive tone, 3A2–3, 4A2–6, 3B4–7, often whitish, cream or yellowish due to thick and densely packed spore powder. Stromata when dry 0.1–0.5(–0.8) mm (n = 25) thick, thinly effuse or flat pulvinate, entirely attached; margin indistinct, rounded, rarely thinly mycelial.
