Capronia glabra W. H. Hsieh et al., Mycol. Res.101: 899-890. 1997.

 Description: Ascomata 185-248 μm high, 110-175 μm wide, immersed, separated, scattered, ovoid, glabrous, with shortly papillate ostiole. Periphysoids 2-4 μm wide arising in the upper part of the locule, septate, unbranched, directed upwards towards the ostiole, continuous to the ostiolar canal which is lined with analogous filaments which are narrower and measure up to 2 μm wide. Pseudoparaphyses lacking. Peridium 12-18 μm thick, composed of 4-6 layers of slightly compressed, pale brown cells forming a textura angularis. The hymenial layer that given rise to the asci is hyaline and of a textura angularis to epidermoiea; it is prominent in the developing ascoma and then becomes flattened, thin and inconspicuous below the asci. Asci 78-96 × 10-22 μm, stipitate, stipe 8-16 μm long, bitunicate, basal, saccate to clavate, 8-spored. Ascospores 18-25 × 8-11 μm, olivaceous, 4-7-transversely septate and slightly constricted at septa, almost every segment with at least one longitudinal to oblique septum, overlapping uniseriate, broadly obovoid to broadly fusiform with rounded ends.
