The fruiting bodies are usually pedunculated sporangia, a calyculus may be present or absent. The delicate peridium is reduced to a structure of vertical, thickened threads that are interconnected by extremely fine, translucent transverse threads. In some cases, however, the peridium may also appear like a net. Mostly dark, clearly visible dictydine granules are found especially close to the ribs of the peridia, the calculus, and the spores.
