They were relatively purple

so I would call it a solid amyloid reaction.

I added a pic of the spores. The pic isn’t very good because I was using a DSLR without a DSLR microscope adapter. But the color is accurate. I ordered a DSLR microscope adapter today.

I still have this collection, is there anything else I should check?

The pleurocystidia was abundant and sharp. I added a picture of the cystidia that I took without mounting the mushroom under a cover slip – I just put the whole thing on a microscope slide and illuminated it with bright light from above.

Positive for iodine

Is it possible that you misinterpreted the amyloid spores? Was it a marginal color change or a solid, absolute amyloid reaction?
