There are some strange features to emphasize in this microscopic observation:
- The existence of a number of Giant spores with more than the double of the regular size (see the corresponding photo);
- The structure of the pileipellis that was epected to be cellular, at least a thin layer of it;
- The inexistence of velar remnants at the margin of pileus (I have made a more or less tangential cut at the margin with no success.
