 Description: Ascomata globose, 480-560 μm in diam., immersed but raising the host tissues, solitary, scattered, with a conical, 180-210 μm high, apical papillate ostiole. Clypeus subepidermal to 800 μm long, composed of dark brown, thick-walled cells forming a textura angularis to a textura intricata, capping and surrounding the upper half of ascoma, intergrating into peridium. Peridium at the lower half of ascoma, 16-28 μm wide excluding prosenchymatous tissues, internally of pale brown, compressed cells, externally of polygonal, dark brown cells, covered by brown hyphae forming a prosenchyma; upper half melanized, merging with the clypeus. Paraphyses mucilaginous, mutually interwoven, 3-4 μm wide, unbranched. Asci cylindrical, 160-200 × 12-14 μm, pedicellate, stalk up to 30 μm long, basal in ascoma, unitunicate, 8-spored, with a stopper-shaped, amyloid, 4-6 × 2-4 μm apical ring. Ascospores elliptical, 22-26 × 8-12 μm, rounded at ends, uniseriate, unequally 1-septate, large cell brown to dark brown, 22-24 × 8-12 μm, dwarf cell hyaline, persistent, becoming brown large cell, and no longer than half the length of it.
