Description: Sporangia crenulate, 18–40 × 18–32 µm, about 6 µm high and 0,5 µm thick walls. The exit pore, often observed at the upper side of the HdV-13 sporangia, is 4–7 µm in diameter. The inner part is closed, apart from a small pore in the center. It is restricted to the ombrotrophic part of the section of this research.

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: In the most oligotrophic, wet Scheuchzeria peat; Part of a Sphagnum peat.
