Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, gregarious or in loose groups, (.075)-.1-.12-(.135) mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present (mostly about as long as the diam., often very short); mycelioid, .5-1.5-(2.5) µm long, 4-9 µm in diameter, pigmented (brown below, paler in the upper half), numerous, growing all across the lower half of the ascocarp, thin, not ramified or ramified (frequently), not branched, septate.

Asci: 3-8 asci per ascocarp, rarely not stipitate or indistinctly stipitate, 45-75 µm long, 30-45-(50) µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate.

Ascospores: 1–2 or c. 4 per ascus, spores 3-5 per ascus, ellipsoid or ovoid, 18-26 µm long, 11-16 µm wide; septa absent; wall thin, remaining hyaline, hyaline, not ornamented.

Conidiomata: Present; hyphomycetous.

Conidiophores: Branched; basal cells 18-35-(40) µm long, 7-11 µm wide. Conidium Formation: Conidiogenous cells single. Conidia: Ellipsoid, more or less cylindrical, or ovoid; macroconidial (germ tubes on an end, usually short and stout, apex somewhat swollen or lobed), not branched, 30-50 µm long, (11)-14-22.5 µm wide; aseptate; without distinct fibrosin body fibrosin bodies.
