Apothecia lirellate, scattered all over the thallus, 1-3 x 0.3-0.5 mm, typically appearing under the thallus then in the open air by tearing it which leaves a false whitish margin forming a bead which is actually the margin of the tear of the thallus, flat and at the same level as the thallus, wide, ends usually acute, seldom simple, straight or sickle or scimitar-shaped, most often feather bunch-like, dendritic or stellate, black, often covered with grey pruine; a section perpendicular to its axis shows the dark carbonaceous margin continues under the hymenium, Ascospores, narrowly fusiform, brown, 5-9-septate, 30-40 x 6-9 µm.
