The microscopy of a specimen was dominated by the presence of refractive cells either hialine or with yellow content, very irregular in form. The last to set of photos are devoted to its observation, the first with magnification 400, where those with yellow content are good visible, and the last with magnification 1000, where those with hialine content became also visible. The spores are smaller than in my previous observations of Panaeolus (with the exception of P. guttulatus, which has comparable spores) and maybe a bit too short for P. fimicola, the only I know with similar features.
