I read on the text book:

The characteristic of Dinemasporium are: superficial, cupulate to Discoid conidiomata with brown satae, Phialid conidiogenous cells that give rise to hyaline, oblong to Allantoids, and Aseptate conidia with an appendage at each end.

My question:

the phrase "oblong to Allantoids"; Is the word oblong valid for this context? if not, what other word would associate?

Oblong is probably correct in this context, but "allantoids" should probably be "allantoid" to be the adjective form. It's describing translucent (hyaline), oval (oblong) to sausage-shaped (allantoid), undivided (aseptate) spore.
