Conidiophores tall and bearing colourless 2- to 5-celled spores (conidia) at the tips of short apical branches. As the name implies, the branching is like that of a candelabrum. The species are predacious on eelworms and catch them in constricting rings (a) or sticky networks (b). Arthrobotrys species are similar but do not have conidiophores with branched tips. Some authors consider the two genera to be indistinguishable. Holomorph unknown. Ref: Cooke 1969; Rifai and Cooke 1966; Rubner, 1996
