Remarks (public):The general habit of this fungus resembles that of very small specimens of Corticium Oakesii, of large species of Cenangium, or of a sessile Cyphella; from all of which Eichleriella Schrenkii is easily separated by its longitudinally septate basidia which show clearly in sectional preparations. The fructifications are much smaller than those of any other species of this genus heretofore described.
