The hyphae

On the stipe seem pretty well differentiated from the tomentose basal mycelium. Do you think that the fibrillose hyphae are composed of velar material as opposed to being terminal cells?

I don’t think it is accurate

to call the fibrillose mycelium on the stipe caulocystidia.

The morphology here

is very interesting. The caulocystidia appear to form a sheath that terminates with an annulus, the pileus seems unusually decurved/ irregular. The pilei appear to be very dry and I would expect to see more evidence of hygrophanous tissues, these appear to be merely virgate.
