Microscopy added; What is this?

I´m in trouble with the results of the microscopy. It can be a Lecidella, but the micro features are much different from what I’m used to observe in this genus. The spores are smaller (all in the ranges 9.8 – 12 × 4.3 – 5.2 µm) and more fusiform than usual; the interascal tissue consists of branched and anastomosed paraphyses, seeming to be immersed in a gel.
