Usually when spores are mounted in Melzers the background is yellowish, but maybe you set the custom white balance, which is a really good idea when taking micrographs of mushrooms mounted in melzers.

The spores were mounted in Melzers. Sorry I didn’t make it clear.

Added three photos from which some measurements can be read. Everything fits the description, except that the spores (6.5-8 × 5.5-6) are a bit wider.

The description has “strongly amyloid spores”—-at odds with this observation.
