Single specimen, growing on a cut end of a conifer log. Cup size: 18 × 15 mm. Orange, not red.

Typical mature-looking spores within asci or out measure 24-26 × 11-19. Found 6 spores 26-29 microns long. Spores are verrucose with that warty layer about 1 micron wide.

Asci ~260 × 20. Parphyses up to 10 microns wide at tips, ~4 microns normally.

The largest hair 450 × 40.

This large-spored Scut. does not seem common. I don’t have the necessary literature.
