Basidiole 27.0 × 9.0 × 3.7 µ

Pleurocystidia: Absent

Cheilocystidia:
Fusiform to ventricose, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, with capitate apices
30.0 × 5.7 × 4.5 µ
48.5 × 8.9 × 5.4 µ
41.2 × 10.6 × 2.8 µ

51.7 × 4.6 × 3.7 µ
35.5 × 7.2 × 2.5 µ
32.6 µ
46.0 µ
49.3 µ

Pileocystidia:
Rare, tapered fusiform-ventricose to filiform-cylindrical, hyaline.
I was only able to capture the clavate cystidia which measured 53.9 × 18.8 × 5.9 µ
However Pileocystidia was observed outside of my camera system.

Caulocystidia:
Fusiform to ventricose, similar to cheilocystidia but more variable, flexuous, with capitat to subcapitate or filiform apices, hyaline, fasciculate. Often with Forked Cystidia.

Clamp connections present.
