This fungus was found growing in rocky soil in an open area in the woods of Lemon Lake Park in Crown Point, IN. Tiny groups of the fungi were found growing in close clusters gregariously. Its smell is non-distinctive. The ascocarp is smooth, dry, bright orange and irregularly shaped, pushing into itself. It is very small in size, with measurements ranging from 1.5-3.5cm. The spore print created for this fungus was white in color, and under the microscope the spores were clear in color. They were found in distinctive ascomycotan structures, the asci.
