Margin: External filaments present (straight to curved, sometimes irregularly bent); recurved (occasionally) or straight, 1-3 µm long, 6-9 µm in diameter, hyaline or pigmented (at the very base, sometimes in the lower half of the stalk), few, 6-12 per mm², growing between the lower and upper hald of the ascocarp, flexuose (often) or geniculate (bent) (sometimes irregularly bent), smooth or rough (below), thin or thick (towards the base), ramified, dichotomously branched (3-5 times, loosely and irregularly, branchings diffuse, wide, primary branches often elongated, sometimes closer and more regular, tips straight, not recurved, few tips occasionally recurved), aseptate or septate (1-3 septa).
