“These are immature basidia on gill-sides, interspersed in the hymenium and are usually clavate to cylindric and with brown cell contents. They are erratic in occurrence, but when found we have recorded their presence. Further study may indicate limited taxanomic usefulness, but at present they are not employed to distinguish groups or species.”


based on that, i am forced to assume that the “hyaline basidioles,” are not basidioles at all.
i believe what we may be seeing are the cells composing the sub-hymenium.

Do you have any ideas on why some Gymnopilus basidioles are pigmented while others are hyaline?

spores: very heavily roughened (spiny)

brown basidiole (as described, buried)

i believe this is appendiculate cheilocystidia as described.
