Notes:
Growing erumpent through the underside of a fallen Quercus rubra twig. All structures inamyloid. Paraphyses hyaline, thin, irregular and some branched, hyaline.Asci unitunicate, inoperculate and 8-spored. Spores biseriate in asci. Spores smooth and hyaline, aseptate with some spores slightly cureved. Spore measurements from Piximetre: (21.8) 22.6 – 25.6 (26.9) × (6.1) 6.5 – 7.6 (7.8) µm, Q = (3.1) 3.2 – 3.7 (3.8); N = 25, Me = 24.2 × 7.1 µm; Qe = 3.4
