Stromata upright, usually unbranched, up to 12 cm high, 3 cm broad. Fertile part cylindric to fusoid, flattened, wrinkled, at first solid, becoming hollow and inrolled. Surface sometimes bearing remains of conidial pegs (Figs 3, 4) or with pits where conidial pegs detached. Exterior at first brown becoming dull blackish; interior at first white, soon deteriorating. Stipes usually abrupt and narrowed, smooth to furrowed, concolorous with fertile part, very short to 1/’2 length of stroma, 2–5 mm diam. Texture carbonaceous. Perithecia up to 1 mm diam. Ostioles slightly raised and rounded. Asci 8-spored, stipitate, 170–200 μm total length, 8–11 μm broad, the spore-bearing part 100–120 μm long, with apical ring bluing in Melzer’s iodine reagent, urn-shaped, 6 μm high, 3 μm broad. Ascospores brown, unicellular, ellipsoid-inequilateral, often with abrupt pinched ends, smooth, 17–21(–23) x 6–7.5 μm, with obliquely oriented germ slit much less than spore-length. Paraphyses abundant, longer than asci. Anamorph Moelleroclavus penicilliopsis.
