Encrusted metuloid pleurocystidia are present along with thick walled non-encrusted cystidia (cheilocystidia)? See photomicrographs.

I’m not sure how the Isotype collected in New Jersey 126 years ago (!!) ended up in the Univ of Michigan Herbarium. Now a specimen of same, collected by me in Maine, is in the Kudzma Herbarium in New Jersey.

Amazing, great work!
