I’ve called this Coconut Ice but is it by any chance an Aleurodiscus sp.

but not so simple to know what I am looking at. I have some images to add but I think I’ll do it as a new observation as I cant work out haw to just add. Hope you can follow the link and explain please. Many thanks. T

very simple!

take a tiny, tiny piece of tissue, place it on the slide, add a single drop of KOH, allow the tissue to rehydrate a bit, place a cover slip on top, apply enough pressue to flatten the tissue but not break the cover slip, presto change-o, you have a slide ready for viewing. you will know if it is too thick by the presence of very dark and totally opaque areas in your mount, or if the liquid pools to one part of the slide.

Yes I do
