Saprobic on mangrove substrates, Sexual morph: Ascomata 1100–1750 μm high, 290–640 μm diam. at center, 82.5–280 μm diam. at base, 100–200 μm diam. at apex; obtusely clavate to obtusely fusiform; stipitate, epapillate, coriaceous, olive brown, aggregated or solitary, ascoma wall differentiated into several layers of polygonal, thick–walled cells; ascoma superficial seated on the substratum with a hypostroma, composed of pseudoparenchymatous cells and brown hyphae 5–20 μm diam.; ostiolate; stipe composed of a cortex of polygonal, brown cells. Ascoma attached by a hypostroma immersed in the host tissue of Nypa fruticans. Peridium 30–55 μm thick, composed of 3–5 layers of cells. Immature ascomata are differentiated into a wall composed of several layers of polygonal, thick–walled cells and smaller, thin–walled cells that appear dark. Pseudoparaphyses 1.23–2.5 μm diam., narrow, numerous, septate, simple, trabeculate between asci arising from the base of the centrum, but reticulate and anastomosing in the upper part of the centrum and arising from the venter wall. Asci 440–640 × 30–50 μm, 8–spored, cylindrical, bitunicate, thick–walled, developing at the base of the ascoma venter between the pseudoparaphyses. In mature ascomata branching and reticulate pseudoparaphyses stand between the asci. Ascomata contain 3–5 mature asci and are visible through the thin ascoma wall. Asci with apical apparatus, comprising a lens–shape disk and more clearly defined with ascus maturity. Immature ascospores are hyaline, 1–septate, and not constricted at the septum. Ascospores germinate readily, always from the basal smaller cell. Asexual morph: Undermined.
