Upper surface epruinose, without isidia but often with small, round accessory lobules. Lower surface pale to almost black. Rhizines pale to black, sometimes projecting beyond lobe margins. Apothecia usually present, to 5 mm wide, pale yellowish to black. Ascospores fusiform to ellipsoidal, 7–14 × 3–5 µm.
