Spores at 1000x in Meltzer’s , Dextrinoid. These were immature spores in the gill tissue. The spores didn’t drop to make a print.

The cap didn’t drop enough spores to make a good spore print. When I did a crush mount of a gill and added Meltzer’s reagent, the spores on the gill surface stood out as red. I examined the pileocutis , added congo red stain and there were a lot of inflated irregular cells.

Those are great leads. Cystolepiota doesn’t seem to occur that much in California. I am doing a spore print – What else should I be looking for? Cystidia ?
