Peridium yellow or ochraceous-yellow by TL, smooth, pleated towards the stalk, dehiscing at the apex and remaining as a basal cup. Elaters usually unbranched, ochraceous-yellow by TL, 4.5-5.5 µm diam. in the middle, gradually attenuate into the very long points (75-150 µm), with 4-5 smooth, rather thick spirals, without longitudinal striae. Spore-mass, including the capillitium, ochraceous or ochraceous-brown. Spores pale yellow, 10-13 µm diam., decorated with short irregular ridges and a broken small-meshed reticulum of bands up to 1 µm high, showing as a border in optical section.
