f. minor info: http://www.micobotanicajaen.com/...

There are only few species worldwide, I know of no single paper that covers them all. NZ has a gastroide species! Macrocystidia reducta

Macrocystidia link? Monograph? Key?

Anyone have any info on Macrocystidia, besides M. cucumis?

I can’t find much on this genus. Any links or ideas?

But didn’t make the best cross-section.

Did you look for cystidia on the gills?

A bit pale coloured, but it reminds of Macrocystidia…

Any ideas?

I am unable to measure spores, my scope only goes to 400x and my reticle is not calibrated.
