The question was, would a translucent cell with colored contents be best considered Hyaline. This question is troublesome because you first have to answer the question of wether or not “brown contents” are a component of the cell, or merely contained within the cell.

read about some species of Gymnopilus with brown tinted cystidia.
i have to try and find the article again…
it is still unclear to me.
i’ll be scoping them again this weekend.

Thats pretty much what I believe too. Though I’m reminded daily that what I believe is often wrong. I guess it would help to figure out what makes up a basidiole.

Hesler’s general description of basidioles in Gymnopilus is beyond vague. The man made an art out of being vague.
I believe hyaline

means the cell itself is transparent, regardless of its “contents” if that makes sense. A completely clear cell if the “contents” are removed perhaps.

The word Hyaline imply a lack of color? Or just a degree of transparency? I need to know this and can’t seem to find the answer on my own.

In Gymnopilus have “brown cell contents”. Would hyaline still be the best term with which to describe them?

By: Richard and Danielle Kneal (bloodworm)

but i don’t think so.
1 is brown and the other is identical in shape and size.
there is no account for brown cystidia in the genus.

The bottom two pics are capitate cystidia

Basidioles would be hyaline and would not have a ball on the apex

i still have to see more of these under the scope.
i don’t believe those to be cystidia at all.
i think they are basidioles.
i think either pleuro, cheilo or both may be lacking.
but, like i said, i have to look at them again…

Please label your micrographs

Otherwise we have no way of knowing whether the cystidia pictured is cheilocystidia, pleurocystidia, caulocystidia or pileocystidia.

Nice ideas
