Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, scattered, .075-.1 mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present; mycelioid or setiform (intermediary), recurved (primary branches mostly elongated, often more or less horitontally spread or somewhat recurved), 1-1.25 µm long, 5-10 µm in diameter, hyaline or pigmented (sometimes at the very base), few, 4-8 per mm², growing between the lower and upper hald of the ascocarp, stiff and straight, smooth or somewhat verrucose (below), thin or moderatly thick (towards the base), ramified, dichotomously branched (4-5 times, loosely branched, primary branches mostly elongated, often more or less horizontally spread or somewhat recurved, branchings in different planes), aseptate or septate (0-1-septate).

Asci: 2-5 asci per ascocarp, not stipitate or indistinctly stipitate, 45-55 µm long, 30-40 µm wide; dehiscence unitunicate.

Ascospores: c. 4 or c. 8 per ascus, spores 4-8 per ascus, ellipsoid or ovoid, 18-24 µm long, 9-13 µm wide; septa absent.
