Abstract

The beautiful bright coloured species of this genus have a very short life span and appear scattered in groups or in clusters on the soil during the early spring, after showers of rain. The apothecia are sessile or stipitate, externally smooth or covered with delicate soft white hairs; hymenium concave or plane, even or lacunose, usually bright orange or red; asci cylindrical or sub-cylindrical, eight-spored; spores ellipsoid, at first smooth, becoming reticularly sculptured, often also with apicules and ridges at the narrow ends of the spores; paraphyses slender, usually with broad apices.
