Teleomorph: stromata absent. Ascomata perithecia, 150-200 µm diam and 200-300 µm tall, ovoid to pyriform, immersed in the host thallus with the upper third exposed, scattered or clustered, bright red, dark red to violet in KOH, bright yellow in lactic acid. Ascomatal wall 20-35 µm thick, thicker near the apex, in sirface view composed of rounded to angular cells 5-9 µm diam, two-layered. Outer layer strongly pigmented, composed of elongate vertically oriented thick-walled cells 5-10 x 2-3.5 µm in size, inner layer of hyaline, thin-walled radially compressed tissue. Interascal tissue of occasional sparsely branched thin-walled hyphae to 6 µm diam, constricted at the sepata. Ostiolar paraphyses copious, filiform, 1-2 µm diam. Asci 70-100 x 8-11 µm, cylindrical, long-stalked, thin-walled, not fissitunicate, the apex rounded to truncate, without clear apical structures, initially 8-spored but with the ascospores coalescing to form (1-) 2 (-4) compound structures. Ascospores initially (7-) 10-16 (-20) x (6-) 7-10 (-12) µm, when coalesced the compound structures (19-) 22-38 (-65) x (7-) 9-11 (-13) µm, ± cylindrical but often irregular in form, the ends rounded, with multiple transverse septa and occasionally muriform, the septa often oblique, hyaline to pale yellow-brown when mature, smooth but weakly verrucose when mature, probably with a mucous sheath that degenerates to form the ascospore ornamentation.
