The fruit body consists of a more or less globular sac of powdery spores atop a broad stem. The brown spore sac is about a centimetre in diameter and has a star-shaped mouth, initially bright red. At first there is a hemispherical cap over the spore sac and that cap falls off in one piece.
The stem (several centimetres long and 1 or 2 in diameter) looks like a braided bundle of roughened cords and has a rubbery texture (at least initially or in moist conditions).
Found growing from the ground, often in wet forests.
