Sporocarps scattred or in small groups, hemispherical to ± globose,
ca. 0.1-0.2 mm Ø, shiny ochraceous, with circular, slightly paler lid,
which is not sunken in moist sporocarps.
Inconspicuous, not seen.
Peridium thin, membraneous, ± smoky by TL, with refuse matter on
the outside, lid circular, devoid of granular matter, smoky by TL,
with ± globose protuberances on the inside, less than 1 µm high,
and with scattered, irregular nodes, ca. 1-2 mm Ø, darker than
membrane, looks like small aggregations of tiny globules.
Spores pale smoky by TL, ochraceous by RL, thin-walled, appearing
± smooth with scattered groups of small warts, the groups may be
quite large, globose, 10-11.9-13.5 µm Ø (n=25).
On litter of nedles and twigs from Juniperus communis ssp. nana;
developed in moist chamber.
