This species forms dots on rock in shallow streams in the uplands (south-west Ireland). The grey-green to brown thallus is minutely bubble-wrap blistered with discs (perithecia) each of which, except for the apex, is wrapped in a thin involucrellum and a layer of thallus. Spores are one-septate and within the medium range (2430 x 1014m).

Key characteristics

  • Thallus grey-green to brown; perithecia surrounded by an involucrellum and layer of thallus
  • Spores one-septate >20m long; wet shallow rocks, moorland streams.
