Plasmodium translucent white. Sporocarps in small groups or solitary, 1.5-2.0 mm tall, ▒ erect. Hypothallus discoid or continuous under the group, brown and inconspicuous. Stalk up to 33% of the total height, with a net of fibres at the base, often opaque above. Sporotheca cylindrical or obovoid, 0.3-0.6 mm diam., brown. Peridium usually completely fugaceous but sometimes persistent as a collar around the stalk apex. Columella merging into the capillitium just below the apex of the sporotheca. Capillitium primary branches perpendicular to the columella, hardly anastamosing, dichotomously branched, with many, rather straight, long, free ends at the periphery which are sometimes slightly swollen. Spores pale red-brown, verruculose, 6.0-7.0 Ám diam.
