Glossary Term: Pleurochrysocystidia

Chrysocystidia that are not found along the true gill edge(s) but rather upon the gill face and away from the true gill edge. These cells are generally identified based on having a yellow or golden body (or body part), that becomes more deeply yellow when exposed to KOH, ammonia or other alkaline compounds.
