Observation 63845: Pluteus cervinus (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.
When: 2011-02-24
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: 2 of 4: the one with broadly ventricose pleurocystidia with branching “antlers” and pointed terminal elements of the pileipellis (some, not all). See how its cheilocystidia on the second picture are a warmer colour than the rest of the cells, it’s because of the pale yellow-brown pigment in them. Clamp connections absent in the pileipellis. Rather small and cute for a P. cervinus s.l., too.

Cheilocystidia; there are almost no small ones while they are abundant in the specimen#1
135588
Pleurocystidia close to the lamella margin are generally smaller, many are ventricose.

Pleurocystidia, note the interesting branching of the apical projections.

Tips of the pileipellis terminal elements

spores, I’ll add the measurements soon
135592
Basidia, several spores including two immature clusters (bottom right) and a paraphysis (paraphyses of this taxon are about as broad as the basidia but contain less hydrophobic droplets).
135593
Terminal elements of the pileipellis, note pointed apices.
135594
pileipellis hyphae – no clamps on the septa.

Nice microscopy!
I love it when folks post their microphotos!

could you list what the micro images are of?
