Anamorph: ascospores have been reported to germinate and produce minute hyaline ellipsoidal to ovoid conidia 1-2 x 1-1.5 µm in size. Teleomorph: ascomata developing from a veil-like ephemeral basal stroma, composed of angular to globose cells 8-15 x 6-12 µm in size with thick brown cell-walls. Ascomata solitary or in small groups, (15-) 20-35 (-60) mm tall, spathulate, the fertile part flattened and forming a broad flange around the upper part of the stalk, pale or bright yellow to ochraceous and sometimes furrowed or undulating. Stalk 25-35 µm in length, slender, tapering at the base, paler than the fertile part, smooth or slightly scurfy. Hymenum extending over the whole of the upper part. Interascal tissue of narrow branched hyaline paraphyses 1.5-2 µm diam., often curled at the tips, withou a clearly differentiated epithecial layer. Asci (85-) 100-120 x 10-13 µm, cylindric-clavate, quite short-stalked, thin-walled and not fissitunicate, with a minute apical pore not blueing in iodine, 8-spored. Ascospores fasciculate, 40-54 (-62) x 2-3 µm, narrowly cylindric-clavate, hyaline, becoming multiguttulate, with a narrow gelatinous sheath that is thicker at the apex of the spore.
