yeah allenii looks promising,

though the average measurement of the spores are off by 1µm in both Length and Width.

The cystidia matches very well. but i observed no caulocystidia in this collection. I may check again. but i took a few samples from the apex of the stipe, it would be odd that i would have not seen at least 1

There is pleuro, You can see the pic labeled pleurocystidia

When i said there was no pleuro, i was saying that i didnt observe anything that resembled pleuro from the small amount of gill fragments, i couldnt find any cystidia.

More material was sent and the new micrographs are from that.

Oh, ok

So really no pleurocystidia? Are you sure? How long did you look for it?

yes!

I am going to re measure the images… i will get back tonight on it.

Do you have some spore statistics
By: Alan Rockefeller (Alan Rockefeller)

So I don’t need to read all the numbers from the images?

The material was small.

only a bit of cap. and i didnt see any cystidia in my mounts.

no pleuro.
Cystidia

Size and shape of cheilocystidia? Are pleurocystidia and pileocystidia present.

yeah…

Since im running windows on bootcamp, i started to copy and paste in a .txt. worked much better than screenshot. like nothing id really seen, the closest thing is caerulipes, and information about where the larch bonsia came from, i think its pretty promising, though looks nothing alike. The gill edges were crushed bad… i didnt find any cheilo. I requested more material.

Spore size
By: Alan Rockefeller (Alan Rockefeller)

Your images show spores up to 11 micrometers, but the spore sizes in the image with the statistics are much smaller.

Looks like image 390867 is Pholiotina spore stats.
