Neolecta irregularis is a ascomycete with an unusual fruiting body structure. The fruiting bodies consist of hyphae and a hymenium (which lacks paraphyses and the asci lack croziers). Neolecta has no close relatives, but is found at the base of the Ascomycota phylogeny, distantly related to other Taphrinomycotina. N. irregularis was imported into MycoCosm for comparative purposes.
