Forming sporocarps or plasmodiocarps. Sporocarps scattered or loosely clustered, stalked, subglobose, 0.6-0.7 mm diam., dark purplish brown and glossy, broadly veined with white or buff deposits of large, stellate lime crystals, or sometimes completely covered with lime and then uniformly pale buff or whitish. Plasmodiocarps flat, effused, without columellae, up to several centimetres across and nearly covering the leaf surfaces on which they occur. Peridium cartilaginous, chestnut-brown with thinner yellow lines of dehiscence as seen by TL. Dehiscence into scale-like fragments. Columella subglobose, orange. Stalk stout, yellow, orange or brown, 0.4-0.6 mm high, often arising from a vein-like, spongy hypothallus charged with crystalline lime. Capillitium of slender, branched and anastomosed dark brown threads, pale at the extremities where they are often attached to the peridium. Spores violet-grey, verruculose, the warts sometimes arranged in lines, 7-9 m diam. Plasmodium orange-red.
