The smooth, bright yellow fruit bodies are small—typically less than 3 mm (0.12 in) in diameter and up to 1 mm (0.04 in) high—and shallowly cup- or disc-shaped. The inner surface is smooth, and bright yellow, while the outer surface is a paler yellow. In mass, the spore color is white. The stalk is broad, pale yellow in color, and short to nearly absent
