Found by Bharati, at the SFSU Spring Sierras Course.
The first micro-shot is of a gill edge at 400x in KOH. Dense cheilocystidia on non-fertile edge, more or less cylindrical to slightly fusiod and wavy, a few branched.
The second mirco-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid, tan, lightly punctate, and lacking a germ pore.
So, Bharati finds these, and I get a photo, and brush it off as obvious C. fimbriatus. Then she shows it to Prof. Desjardin, and he says, of, wait check those under the scope. So, I do, and get down the details that are needed, and then go and check the North American Species of Crepidotus, Smith. And sure enough it is C. fimbriatus…
