Diagnosis Hydnocystis transitoria is a North American species distinguished from other Hydnocystis species by its distinct ITS sequence, nearly smooth ascoma, its thick, well developed epithecium of parallel and interwoven paraphyses tips, and its envelopment of asci within paraphyses that are interwoven and sometimes fused. Among Hydnocystis species with a simple cavity, it is distinguished by much smaller spores.
