Complete Description
Stromata immersed, valsoid with a distinct, erumpent, short or tall ostiolar cushion, hyphal tissue indistinct around the ascomata, dense, yellow-colored around the short ostiolar cushions (Fig. 3b) and white-colored around the tall ostiolar cushions; a bluish-purple color sometimes present on the ostioles and surrounding substrate from masses of discharged ascospores. Ascomata perithecial, valsoid, in small to large clusters (ca. 15-30 perithecia per stroma, but highly variable), polystichous, subglobose with long necks converging in an erumpent, flat-topped cushion. Ascomal walls dark brown, composed of pseudoparenchymatic cells. Paraphyses long, tapering above the asci. Asci clavate, stipitate, spore bearing part 35-40 x 4-6 µm, stipe 14-17 µm long, with 8 uniseriate ascospores. Ascospores oblong, one-celled, brown, 6.3-7 x 2.5-3.5 µm, with inconspicuous pore at one end.
