as far as the green cells, I am not sure. I assume they are of something photosynthetic/non-fungal. I am not familiar enough with either pollen or algae to identify the contaminants.

edit: this paper may also prove useful:

I do have this in the tube for extraction and sequencing, there are 5 records of the genus in GenBank, 3 from the US Forest service in Wisconsin and two from Sweden. Can you suggest other micro features that might be useful? Do you agree the large green cells are algae? Maybe the fusiform ‘spores’ are pollen.

fusiform spores

are contaminants. the hyaline, globose spores with the strong apiculi are consistent with R. copelandii, though possibly with other species as well.
