Ascobolus nodulosporus Brumm., Persoonia, suppl. 1: 92 (1967).

 

Basionym Boudiera marginata W. Phillips & Harkn., Bull. California Acad. Sci., 1: 25 (1884).

Diagnosis Crowded, at first orbicular, then patteliform, with a serrated margin, dull-ochraceous; asci broadly clavate, sporidia 8. spherical, becoming rufous, areolate .02 mm., paraphyses linear, rather stout.
