Exciple composed of unevenly thickened hyphae 3-4 µm diam., hyaline except around the opening where they are dark olivaceous. Interascal tissue of cellular pseudoparaphyses 1.5-2.5 µm diam. Asci 55-65 x 10-12 µm, clavate, short-stalked, fissitunicate with a distinct ocular chamber, with a small cylindrical J+ ring, 8-spored.
