See Miller (1961)[as Hypoxylon caries] for a description of the teleomorph. The following is given as a supplement to Miller's description:
Stromata carbonaceous immediately beneath the surface; whitish, soft tissue between the perithecia; tissue beneath the perithecial layer inconspicuous.
Perithecia obovoid, 0.3-0.6 mm diam x 0.5-0.7 mm high.
Ostioles slightly higher than the stromatal surface, with openings slightly papillate.
Asci with apical ring bluing in Melzer's iodine reagent, inverted hat-shaped, 2.5 µm high x 2.5 µm broad.
Ascospores light brown, unicellular, cylindrical, nearly equilateral, with broadly rounded ends, (9-)10-13(-14) x 4-5 µm, with straight, obscure germ slit 1/4 to 1/3 spore-length.
