Complete Description
Stromata immersed, valsoid with a prominent erumpent, ostiolar cushion, composed of yellow-colored, loose, hyphal tissue around the ascomata and brown-colored, denser hyphae around the ostioles. Ascomata perithecial, valsoid, in small to large clusters (ca. 20-50 perithecia per stroma, but highly variable), polystichous, obpyriform to subglobose with long necks converging in an erumpent, flat-topped cushion with more-or-less vertical sides. Ascomal walls dark brown, composed of pseudoparenchymatic cells. Paraphyses long, tapering above the asci. Asci clavate, stipitate, 50-60 X 5.5-6.5 µm, with 8 uniseriate ascospores. Ascospores ellipsoid to oblong, one-celled, brown, 5.5-6.5 X 2.5-3.0 µm, with inconspicuous pore at one end .
