In some Mycenenas it’s difficult to extricate the cystidia and manage to see a single one in its entirety. In others, like here, they just flow around after a little pressure is applied to the cover slide. I did nothing special.

How did you manage to get all those cheilocystidia lined up? Just chance? :)
