- Chemical reactions: C-, K+ yellow to red, KC+ red, P+ yellowish-orange;
- Base of exciple closed with margin continuing under disc;
- Asci almost cylindrical (measured two, with 88 × 8.2 µm and 91 × 11.5 µm) with several (8?) spores;
- Spores brown at maturity (colourless when young), several (variable) septate, with the following approximate average dimensions: 28.7 × 6.5 µm.
