Asci 78-96 (-120) x 9-10 µm, narrowly clavate with a long tapering stalk, thin-walled, not fissitunicate, the apex obtuse with a distinct ring that blues in iodine, 8-spored. Ascospores arranged biseriately, 23-32 (-37) x 3-3.5 µm, narrowly clavate-cylindrical, hyaline, sometimes slightly curved, the apex rounded and the base tapered and ± acute, thin- and smooth-walled, aseptate or rarely 1-septate, the contents very lipid-rich, without a gelatinous sheath or appendages.
