Phragmitensis has aggregated, immersed, pseudostromata, containing several obpyriform ascomata, clavate asci, lacking an apical ring and hyaline unicellular, cymbiform, ellipsoidal to reniform ascospores, with distal end tapered more than the proximal end and surrounded by a mucilaginous sheath (Wong et al. 1998b, 1999).
