Taxonomic Literature: Taxonomic notes: +ascocarp outer wall cells irregularly polygonal, 7-20 µm diam.;This variety differs from var. aquilegiae by appendage and ascospore characters, see below. Braun U., Beih. Nova Hedwigia 89: 1-700 [225-226] (1987).

Margin: External filaments present (curved to substraight, length variable, long and short ones mixed; (48-)100-510 µm long, width subuniform throughout ot broader below); straight, (.5)-1-4-(5) µm long, (2.5)-5-7.5 µm in diameter, pigmented (brown more or less throughout, light brown in the upper half), numerous, growing all across the lower half of the ascocarp, thin, not ramified, septate.
