Good id, that is it. I haven’t seen anything else with these spores, that size and those capitate cystidia. Pretty common really, if you keep your head down in the moss. Nice to see another verification of the spore size. These in this area have very regular spores of that size, 9.5-10.5 um long. But the published descriptions of G. clavata have spore size ranges of 11-17um, larger and not as regular.
