Plasmodium purple-brown. Sporocarps stalked, (1-)2-4(-5) mm tall. Stalk cylindric, dull yellow or dark reddish- or purplish- brown, opaque, filled with amorphous material. Sporotheca turbinate or pyriform, 0.6-0.8 mm diam., dull olive-yellow to reddish- or purplish- brown. Peridium double, the inner layer membranous, the outer composed of dark granular thickenings, sometimes lacking, often separating before dehiscence and forming areolae separated by the paler inner wall. Spores and capillitium dull yellow to dingy ochraceous brown in the mass. Elaters simple or rarely sparsely branched, bearing 3-5 smooth spirals, 4-5 µm diam. at the centre, tapered gradually into long, slender, acuminate tips. Spores pale, minutely warted, 9-11 µm diam.
