A single layer of rounded spore-bearing fruiting bodies ( about 1 mm wide) on short shiny stalks. All of these sacs showed a dark speck. The colour of these globular bodies ranged from pale peach to grey to black. Also seen amongst these were patches of white material - ? plasmodium.
Spotted on the sawn-off surface a damp decaying Radiata Pine log.
