  Thallus corticate, pale yellow-brown to green, bullate or verrucose. Ascomata ampulliform, oval or subglobose (in section), 0.7–1.7 mm diam., immersed in thalline warts, with copious hyaline crystals, but a conspicuous black ring around the ostiole free of crystals. Ascomatal wall to 150 μm thick. Hamathecium not inspersed with oil droplets, or with large irregular oil droplets near the ostiole. Ascospores 1 (or 2) per ascus, 200–330 × 60–90 μm, becoming brown; ascospore wall distinctly bi-layered, the outer layer dark brown, the inner hyaline; surface verruculose.
  Corticolous at an unspecified locality in Vic. (probably Gippsland), but not collected recently; also in temperate forest in New Zealand.
