Description:463. Torula pulvillus, n. s.
Caespitibus pulvinaribus; floccis compactis rectis ramosis; articulis oblongis leviter constrictis. On dead twigs of oak bursting in little tufts through the bark, Apethorpe, March 1841.
Tufts cushion-shaped, half a line broad, compact, black; flocci straight, slightly branched, often suddenly diminishing in size and again incrassated, consisting of numerous slightly constricted oblong joints; endochrome containing a single nucleus.
Resembling somewhat in structure T. stilbosporoides, Corda, of which we have an authentic specimen, but differing greatly in habit.
