Anamorph: not known.
Teleomorph: ascomata apothecia, 500-1500 µm diam., usually gregarious, pale yellow to orange, at first cupulate and sometimes later becoming discoid to lenticular, sessile. Peridium of thin-walled angular to globose cells 25-30 µ diam., the marginal cells elongate, 6.0-8.0 X 12-14 µm with somewhat thickened, slightly yellowish walls. Interascal tisue of simple filiform septate paraphyses 1.5-2.5 µm diam. with numerous yellowish oil guttules in the cytoplasm, inflated at the apices to 4-5 µm diam. and slightly curved. Asci 90-150 X 11-21 µm, cylindrical to cylindric-clavate, rounded above and tapering below, 8-spored. Ascospores mostly uniseriately arranged, 13.5-18 X (7-) 9-11 µm, broadly ellipsoid, smooth, hyaline to slightly yellowish, each with one de Bary bubble, without a gelatinous sheath or perispore.
Not formally assessed, but judging from FRDBI and FCT records, the species is common and widespread, and would probably be assessed as of Least Concern.
In GB&I, reported from dung of various herbivores, including cow, dog, fallow and red deer, horse, rabbit and sheep. Also reported from (presumably dung-impregnated) soil.
Reported from Cornwall, Somerset and Hampshire in the south to the Outer Hebrides and Sutherland to the north.
