These were almost as common in these Sitka spruce woods at this time of year as they can be in the Bishop pines in northern California.
Wanted to see if I could see the ridge in the spores as reported in the literature. Congo red helped a little.

A good way to see the detail is to stain with congo red; then clear it out by drawing water through by capillary action. You place a drop of water on one side of the cover slip and touch a piece of paper towel on the opposite side. It will dilute the red in the background, while keeping the dye on the spores.
