Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Cleistothecioid, orbicular, forming independently from the host thallus or mycelium, in loose groups or gregarious, (.09)-.11-.14-(.16) mm in diam.. Margin: External filaments present (often unequal in length, straight to curved, delicate, width somewhat decreasing upwards, apex not enlarged, often even narrowed towards the tip); uncinate (loosely to closely), circinate, or sub-helicoid, .8-1-1.2 µm long, 3-8 µm in diameter, hyaline, numerous, 20-100 per mm², growing between the lower and upper hald of the ascocarp or somewhat on the upper half of the ascocarp, flexuose, stiff and straight (rather), or geniculate (bent) (sub-, sometimes, or irregular), smooth (opaque), rough, or verrucose (sometimes strongly), thin or thick (later, at least below), not ramified, aseptate.
