Areolae convex, contiguous. Apothecia frequent, globose also when young, pink, 1-4 mm broad, emarginate or with a narrow margin, brought on erect, subfruticose, smooth, white stipes (podetia), 2-5 mm tall and to 3 mm wide. Hymenium I+ pale blue (reaction ephemeral!); hypothecium colourless; paraphyses simple, not anastomosing, only slightly thickened above. Asci 8-spored, unitunicate, cylindrical, thin-walled, slightly thickened above, I+ blue, the tip I+ deep blue. Ascospores hyaline, mainly 1-celled (some 2-celled), fusiform, 10-26 x 2-3 µm. Pycnidia immersed in warts, mostly laminal. Conidia shortly bacilliform. Photobiont chlorococcoid. Spot tests: thallus K+ yellow, C-, KC+ yellow, P+ yellow to orange, UV+ orange; medulla P+ yellow to orange, UV+ orange. Chemistry: baeomycesic acid, and variable amounts of squamatic acid and atranorin.
