Overview
Plasmodium pink. Plasmodiocarps simple or branched, sometimes forming rings or close nets, less commonly shortened to pulvinate sporocarps or forming a pseudoaethalium, 0.3-1 mm or more diam., dull purplish brown, with a ± wrinkled surface. Peridium double, the outer layer cartilaginous, opaque, ochraceous brown, granular, the inner membranous. Capillitium usually sparse, of simple or scantily branched, slender, pale brown threads, 1.5-2.5 µm diam., variously beaded and often spirally twisted or with the markings in long spirals. Bark forms often have very short elaters. Spore-mass yellow or reddish-brown, often ochraceous in corticolous forms. Spores pale or colourless, subglobose to broadly ellipsoidal, mostly clustered in groups of 2-6, spinulose on the exposed side, 10-15 x 8-10 µm diam.
