Notes: Found under spruce and fir.
Found on spruce cones only. More unbonate/conical and striate than G. marginata. Not sure, maybe there are G. strobilurus? (That isn’t a real species, just a joke, oooh, mycology humor… whatta geek.)

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. Here the cheilocystidia can be seen, and they are fusiod-ventricose with long thin necks, and blunt apecies. No pleurocystidia were seen. Also the spores are dextrinoid here and from 4-spored basidia.
The second micro-shot is of a spore from the stipe apex at 1000x in KOH. Here the spore is ellipsoid, roughened, with a plage. I’ve more photo of spores for this one, but this shot shows the plage so well.
With these roughened spores, no pleurocystidia, the cheilocystidia shape, you get Galerina uncialis.
