Sexual morph: 300–500 × 150–200 µm (x̄ = 368 × 181 µm, n = 10). Apothecia arising singly or in small groups, sessile, slightly erumpent from the substrate, pulvinate, black with shiny appearance. Receptacle convex. Margin distinct, black. Hymenium upper part dark brown and lower part hyaline, within a thick gelatinous matrix. Ectal excipulum composed of small, thin-walled, blackish cells of textura angularis, with algal cells. Medullary excipulum composed of narrow, long, thin-walled, hyaline cells of textura intricata. Paraphyses 1–2 µm wide ( = 1.6 µm, n = 20), numerous, filiform, propoloid, septate, slightly swollen at the apices, apices are glued together to develop a pseudoepithecium. Asci 40–50 × 9–13 µm ( = 45 × 12 µm, n = 30), 8-spored, cylindric-clavate, narrowed to the base, short pedicellate, rounded at the apex, amyloid ring absent at the ascus apex, croziers present at the base of asci. Ascospores 10–15 × 5–6 µm ( = 12 × 5.4 µm, n = 40), hyaline when immature, greenish brown at maturity, smooth walled, ellipsoid, 1-septate, guttulate. Asexual morph: Undetermined.
