Saprobic on submerged decaying wood. Asexual morph: Undetermined. Sexual morph: Ascomata scattered or gregarious, semi-immersed to superficial, perithecial, 280–320 μm high, 260–300 μm diam., subglobose to conical, with basal wall remaining immersed in host tissue, dark brown, ostiolate, papillate, the underlying wood occasionally stained purple. Ascomatal wall coriaceous, 21–38 μm thick, 2-layered, outer layers consisting of dark brown, heavily pigmented, polygonal, thick-walled cells of textura angularis, inner layers consisting of hyaline, elongated, thin-walled cells of textura angularis. Hamathecium of dense, very long trabeculate, filiform pseudoparaphyses, 1.4–2.1 µm wide. Asci 108–166 × 9–11.6 µm ( = 132 × 10.5 µm, n = 30), cylindrical, rounded at the apex, 8-spored, fissitunicate, with a truncate ocular chamber and a short, twisted, furcate pedicel. Ascospores 21.4–27.3 × 4.2–6 µm ( = 24 × 5 µm, n = 35), partially overlapping, arranged obliquely uniseriate, narrowly fusiform with narrowly rounded to acute ends, the upper cell usually slightly broader and shorter than the lower cell, hyaline, uniseptate, smooth-walled, guttulate, strongly constricted at the septum, sometimes curved.
