Caulocystidia and spore, Melzer’s mount.
Cheilocystidia, Melzers mount, no pleurocystidia observed.
Pileipellis becoming vinaceous in Melzer’s

Great to have the ability to quickly sequence interesting ones. Takes me a bit longer to arrange this. Nice micro!

I always scope such Mycenas just in case they are a mycenoid Entoloma. That has happened …
