Peridium thin, nearly colourless, persistent, wrinkled. Dehiscence irregular from above. Columella conical, short. Capillitium dark, with abundant anastomoses, forming a close net, with numerous spiny tips towards the periphery. Spore-mass black. Spores dark smoky brown, prominently and irregularly spiny-verrucose, the warts sometimes arranged in short lines forming a subreticulate pattern, 9-11 µm diam., including the warts, or oval and correspondingly longer and narrower.
