These appear in the same area near the boundary of my property, but so far this year only one fruit body at a time. So, there’s not a lot of material to work with that represents a given observation. I used this one primarily to look for hymenial cystidia. I also found a few spores. Using my better scope (through which I do not get good photos) I got a decent look. Shapes vary according to profile; lacrymoid, with a single apical projection (apiculus?), smoothly sub-rhomboid, all with one gutule. Even through my better scope the contents of the spores outside the guttule (hyaline) and the walls (thin) are faint.
Cheilocystidia variously shaped, many with slightly inflated bumpy/wavy basal portion and long neck tapered to a subacute apex.
