In answer to my own question, and just in case anyone else wants to know.
The structure "analagous to a cleistothecium" (and, yes, for all you
anal types, I mean "similar in function but not in evolutionary
origin")in the deutermycetes seems to be a papulospore. Now, I know some

could consider it as you do a perithecium/pycnidium. Some consider them
a type of sclerotia, but that's argued also (then again, what isn't??).
If anyone knows any more about papulospores or has seen them, please let
