Sexual morph: Ascomata 100–450 × 35.5–470 μm (n = 33), solitary to gregarious, superficial or immersed, globose or subglobose to cylindrical, coriaceous, dark brown, ostiolate, with a long neck 23.5–945 × 11.5–35.5 μm (n = 33). Peridium 12.5–21.5 μm thick, two-layered, composed of an outer layer of cells of textura angularis and an inner layer of oblong cells. Asci 41.5–155 × 12.5–22.5 μm (n = 22), eight-spored, cylindrical, thin-walled, early deliquescing. Ascospores 150–270 × 2.5–5 μm (mean and SE = 212 ± 1.9 × 3.5 ± 0.04 μm, n = 236), parallel to each other, filamentous, curved, hyaline, tapering at each end with an end chamber 6–25 × 2.5–5 μm (mean and SE = 14.7 ± 0.4 × 3.5 ± 0.07 μm, n = 268) from which a hyaline, sticky and slimy mucilage is released through an apical pore. Asexual morph: Unknown.
