I don’t really see clamps

The thing with clamps, esp. on the outer most layer of hyphae, is that you should see them, or not. If you need to search for more than 5-10 mins, you should assume there aren’t clamps. But this is only on the outer most layer, and really squash it to separate the hyphae. The more inner hyphae it can be hard to separate the hyphae enough to see the clamps, or the clamps if they exist are kinda squished in and small. The outer most layer should be rather easy.

I should try and find examples, I’m sure I’ve posted a few…
