Ascobolus viridis Currey, Trans. Linn. Soc. London, 24: 154 (1863).


Basionym Ascobolus viridis Currey, Trans. Linn. Soc. London, 24: 154 (1863).

Diagnosis On clay ground ; sessile, 1/2rd of an inch wide, plane or very slightly concave, of a dark dingy yellowish-green colour, externally very furfuraceous, almost tomentose ; spores elliptic-acuminate, rugoso-striate, amethyst-purple. Hanham Woods, near Bristol, Oct. 15, 1861.
The above characters may seem at first sight to differ but little from those of the common A. furfuraceus; but the very large size, dark colour, and peculiar habitat of the plant seem sufficient to separate it from that species.
