Fruiting bodies aerugineus-green (blue-green); apotheca cup to discoid shaped, 3-10mm broad at maturity; stipitate to sub-stipitate with the stipe typically laterally attached.
Spores fusiform, 5-9 x 1.5-2 µm, smooth. Spore print not seen.
Scattered to gregarious on wood; the wood usually stained blue-green by the mycelium of the fungus.
Much too small to be considered!
Chlorociboria aeruginascens can easily be confused with its close relative, Chlorociboria aeruginosa. Chlorociboria aeruginosa tends to be a little smaller and have a centrally attached stipe rather than a laterally attached stipe. The only consistantly reliable differentiation is the larger spores of Chlorociboria aeruginosa: 9-15 X 1.4-2.8 µm versus 5-8 X 0.7-2.8 µm for Chlorociboria aeruginascens.
